Opportunities

Herb Robbins

The Herb Robbins Symposium is held each year in October. The symposium gives students a platform to present scientific research they have done as well as an opportunity for students to learn about new scientific discoveries and the importance of summer research programs. Last year, we had students from Dallas Baptist University as well as the University of Dallas present.
Here’s the program from last year.

Summer Internships

Internships are a wonderful opportunity to learn science and experience research first hand. Because many of these provide housing and a stipend, they are very competitive. Most have an application deadline of February 1 to March 10 and require faculty recommendation letters. Make your plans in the fall so that faculty will be able to write letters of recommendation for you. Also, you should apply to many internships since they are so competitive. Last year, we had students in many locations including the National Institutes of Health, U.T. Southwestern, and one student went to Malaysia! See Dr. Fletcher for more information.
