Undergraduate Publications

One of the most valuable aspects of a Brandeis education is the opportunity to carry out cutting-edge research in collaboration with faculty, graduate students and postdocs. There are many research opportunities in laboratories in the science departments at Brandeis. Many students begin working in labs as early as their first semester, while others may start as juniors. Often, the research leads up to publication of a Senior Honors Thesis. Since 2003, Brandeis undergraduates have been co-authors on over 220 peer-reviewed research publications in scientific journals.

Names of undergraduate students from Brandeis are indicated below in bold face
