  • Amaral Lab

    Complex systems have interacting parts that exhibit more properties or behaviors on a whole than are apparent from examining the parts separately.

  • Archaeology Laboratory

    Analysis of artifacts from prehistoric and historic archaeological sites.  Archaeological science, particularly micro analysis in archaeology: soil chemistry, microartifact analysis, paleoethnobotany, ceramic thin sections.

  • Auditory Research Laboratory

    Our group is interested in understanding the biomechanics of the inner ear and applying this knowledge towards improving the diagnosis of hearing loss and other diseases of the ear. Undergraduates participate in experiments and data analysis.

  • Barry Farrell Summer Experiential Learning Awards

    Each year the department provides financial support to allow sophomore or junior political science majors to engage in summer experiential learning that is related to their political science studies. Experiences could include an internship or work with a non-profit public service organization. Support is not provided for undergraduate research or for professional development oriented work experiences.

  • Benton J. Underwood Summer Research Fellowship

    Each summer the Psychology Department offers two or more undergraduates a Benton J. Underwood Summer Research Fellowship.  Students who accept these fellowships spend most of the summer working on research at Northwestern with a psychology professor. Both current juniors and current sophomores can apply. Priority is given to current juniors who are majoring in psychology, and work on an Underwood project often serves as the foundation for a senior thesis project.

  • Biophysical Study of DNA-Protein Interactions and Chromosome Structure (Marko Lab)

    Undergrads participate in ongoing research projects involving biophysical study of protein-DNA interactions and chromosome structure.  Methods involved include piconewton (single-molecule scale) micromechanics and visualization studies, with associated molecular and cell biological work, and instrumentation development.  Past students have carried out single-molecule studies of topoisomerases, mechanical properties of chromosomes, and have contributed significantly to instrumentation and software development.  I stress independence of the researchers in my lab, and se

  • Carbon Biogeochemistry Lab

    The Carbon Biogeochemistry Laboratory specializes in the analysis of organic compounds in the natural environment. Undergraduates are involved in sample preparatory methods and instrumental analyses using infrared spectroscopy and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.

  • Carbon Biogeochemistry Laboratory

    We study the transformations of carbon on the Earth’s surface in both terrestrial and marine environments. A current focus of our research concerns how carbon is naturally sequestered in soils and sediments. Undergraduate participation may range from assisting graduate students with projects to performing independent research. Access to instrumentation such as FTIR and GCMS is possible.

  • Carthew Lab

    Systems and physical analysis of gene expression in the retina and other tissues. Approaches include genetics, biochemistry, microscopy, and gene engineering. We also use mathematical modeling and bioinformatics to analyze data.

  • Center for Developmental Therapeutics/Tumor Biology Core

    The Center of Developmental Therapeutics (CDT) was founded in 2009 with the mission of becoming an entry portal for pre-clinical drug development for university and external investigators.   The Tumor Biology Core (TBC), under the umbrella of the Center of the Developmental Therapeutic (CDT), provides services focused on supporting the translation of new therapeutics to the clinic. The TBC supports grant applications and can act as an already established translational Core on multi-investigator U and P type grants.
