Biomedical Research

Scope and Objectives

The Biomedical Research minor is designed to incorporate research into undergraduate science education at UCLA. Applications may be submitted by any UCLA student who meets the admission requirements and has the potential to satisfy the requirements. Students explore the scientific questions and experimental approaches of biomedical research. Faculty members and staff facilitate early placement of students into laboratories on campus for independent research. Students are trained to analyze research literature, present their research in oral and poster formats, and appreciate the ethical, historical, and philosophical issues facing biomedical research.
