The Nanobiotechnology Center at Cornell University no longer offers Internships for High School Students and Undergraduates.
If you are an undergraduate and interested in a nano-related REU, please contacthttp://www.cnf.cornell.edu/cnf5_reuprogram.html
If you are an undergraduate and have a background in plant pathology, viruses, or bacteria and interested in an REU, please contact http://bti.cornell.edu/pgrp/.
For High School Interns, Cornell offers college courses through Summer College (http://www.sce.cornell.edu/sc/index.php). Otherwise, Cornell offers no other internships for high school students.
Thank You for your interest in the Nanobiotechnology Center.
BME 6670 Nanobiotechnology (also AEP/BIOG 6630, MSE 5630)
Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only. M. L. Shuler.
Upper-level undergraduate and graduate-level course that covers the basics of biology and the principles and practice of microfabrication techniques. Course lectures are largely from guest faculty with expertise in the presented topic areas. The course focuses on applications in biomedical and biological research. A team design project that stresses interdisciplinary communication and problem solving is one of the course requirements. The course meets twice weekly with 75-minute classes. All lectures may be teleconferenced to NBTC associate institutes.
Nanobiotechnology is the application of nano- and micro-fabrication methods to build tools for exploring the mysteries of biological systems. It is a graduate-level course that will cover the basics of biology and the principles and practice of microfabrication techniques with a focus on applications in biomedical and biological research. One objective of the course is to facilitate a means through which biologists and engineers can communicate. A team design project that stresses interdisciplinary communication and problem solving will be one of the course requirements.
