Undergrads and high school students


Undergraduate and high school students have contributed to a number of past and current projects in the lab. With the guidance of a grad student or postdoc, these students work on an independent research question that ties into one of the major themes of the lab. Recent projects have involved microscopy, development of hardware to make biophysical measurements, and image analysis.

Please contact current lab members and/or Dan to learn more about the work we do. We are always happy to discuss possible projects.


Undergraduates interested in working in the lab should apply for support from programs such as:

- Molecules, Cells, and Organisms (MCO) Summer Research Opportunities at Harvard (SROH) Internship Program

- National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)

- Harvard Medical School Department of Systems Biology / Quantitative Biology Initiative Undergraduate Summer Internship



Grad Students


Current grad students in our lab come from a number of different programs, including Physics (FAS), Applied Physics (SEAS), Systems, Synthetic, and Quantitative Biology (HMS), and the Molecules, Cells, and Organisms program (MCB). Please contact current lab members and Dan to learn more.
