Are you excited to work alongside faculty members to answer novel scientific questions?
COLSA faculty members are engaged in cutting-edge research in a wide variety of areas within the life sciences. This includes, but is not limited to: cancer biology, host-microbe interactions, adaptive evolution in animals, the neurobiology of pain and anxiety, animal movement, the impact of climate change on small mammals, vertebrate conservation, the causes of marine microbial death, coastal restoration ecology, and undergraduate biology education.
Students at UNH are encouraged to participate in research by working with a faculty member in their lab. The Hamel Center for Undergraduate Research offers a number of programs that can provide financial support for students participating in research. Additionally, UNH offers a week-long celebration of undergraduate research every April with a series of undergraduate research conferences. Almost 2,000 undergraduates present their research in a UNH undergraduate conference each year!
