Experience the Lab Forensic Science, Microbiology & Biochemistry

UNL students in a forensics lab

Experience the Lab: Forensic Science, Microbiology & Biochemistry is a new Learning Community for 2022-2023! Designed to support students from any major who are interested in the molecular life sciences (such as microbiology, biochemistry and forensic science – just to name a few), this LC will provide opportunities to connect with faculty and other students with similar interests and to gain insight into potential careers related to the molecular sciences. LC members will live in Abel Hall and take introductory science courses together. Students will have opportunities to visit local companies, join in hands-on lab training, participate in a research symposium with other undergraduate researchers, graduate students, and faculty, and enjoy other social activities.
