The Titus Lab studies the structure and function of unconventional myosin motors and how they function in cells during cell migration, cell adhesion, development and filopodia formation. Students will learn a variety of lab techniques during the first semester and have the potential to work on an independent project after the first semester. Volunteer and directed research opportunities available. Undergraduate researchers are expected to work 6-8 hours per week.
A successful applicant is interested in biology, genetics or biochemistry, and wants to learn lab research. Attention to detail, ability to focus and execute tasks along with strong problem solving skills are desired.
