Undergraduate Research and Internships

Undergraduate research is an exciting opportunity for biology students to work with faculty and experience the process of discovery. The biology faculty has developed a culture of scholarship in which students learn how to use research to strengthen their understanding of biological concepts. Undergraduate research is actively encouraged throughout the students' curriculum to invigorate learning.

Nazareth students have completed research investigations in a variety of areas including genetics, developmental biology, ecology, microbiology, animal physiology, and plant biology.

Investigating pervasive algae

A Nazareth College summer research project enabled professors, college students, and high school students to use Peckham Hall's sophisticated labs to test for causes and possible solutions to the pervasive algae problem in Lake Ontario. The interdisciplinary project gave Nazareth biology major Jacob Murphy '18 and biochemistry major Shane Fuentes '18 the chance to mentor the area high school students under the direction of two Nazareth professors.
