Microbiology and Developmental Biology Research at St. Edward’s

Thanks to a generous grant from the US Department of Agriculture, freshman and sophomore biology majors have the opportunity to participate in a collaborative research experience, investigating research topics at both St. Edward’s University and the University of Texas at Austin. Additionally, students will be introduced to research and career opportunities at the USDA through a visit to the USDA Agricultural Research Service labs in New Orleans, Louisiana.
