Welcome to the Honors Program and Undergraduate Research in Biology!

The Department of Biology, with support from the university and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, provides this resource to help you find a research lab, obtain credit for your research, or complete an Honors Thesis. Looking for a research sponsor? Research departments and faculty interests are listed within department profiles. Stanford's Office of Science Outreach has a limited number of internship opportunities as well.

The Department of Biology actively encourages students to take advantage of the many research opportunities available in the Stanford community. Undergraduate Biology majors often perform independent research projects in research labs on campus. Off-campus projects are also possible. In either case, these research projects frequently fulfill the requirements for graduation in Biology with Honors.

Throughout these pages, you will find information about the Biology Department Honors Program, general information about research and funding, as well as a list of Frequently Asked Questions.
