Bioinformatics majors are required as part of their curriculum to engage in hypothesis driven research. While only required to conduct research for one semester, the majority of our majors are involved in research for several years. These multi-year experiences provide the student with the opportunity to more fully experience research—all of its highs and its many lows. Significant research experiences provide the student with a taste of what research-intensive graduate programs will be like. Moreover, they are regarded highly by prospective graduate/medical school admissions committees as well as potential employers.
Research experiences can be conducted either on campus with one of the Loyola Bioinformatics faculty or at another institution. Once you have established your research mentor, you will need to register for Research.
Forms for Research Registration:

BIOI 399: This form is to be completed by students conducting research with one of the Loyola Bioinformatics faculty.
