Tokyo, Japan.

Summer in SpainThe Summer Undergraduate Bioengineering Research in Japan program will provide research experience for Clemson students in world-class bioengineering research laboratories at the University of Tokyo under a formal agreement of academic exchange between the two institutions. Students will conduct mentored research in laboratories that best match their interests and prior experience to maximize productivity and impact on the students' career goals. Through mentoring by the faculty leader, Dr. Jiro Nagatomi, and the personnel of the host laboratory, participating students will learn to work with a team, understand how technological advances are made through research conducted by interdisciplinary teams of scientists, develop laboratory skills including recording data recording and keeping a lab notebook, build hypotheses and frame research questions, and communicate results in oral and written formats. Each student will be paired with a Japanese graduate research mentor/tutor, who will work side-by-side with the student in the laboratory and introduce the student to life outside the university.

6 credits: BIOE 460 section 602
