The Department of Biology offers summer research opportunities in the areas of cellular and molecular biology. This program, supported by the Dr. Arnold T. Borer Summer Research Endowment, provides selected students with a stipend, free room and board, and a travel allowance.
John Worden earned a Ph.D. in physiology from St. Bonaventure University and taught here from 1933-1973, serving as Professor of Biology for most of that time. He was also chair of the department from 1937-1947 and acting dean of the graduate school from 1943-1945.
This award itself is a distinction, as only the top juniors in the Biology and Biochemistry programs are invited to submit an application. One Worden Award of $1200 is given each year to support a mentored research project in the senior year.
Summer research opportunities in biochemistry are available on the St. Bonaventure University campus as well as at other institutions.
