CCAM Training Program

Summer Undergraduate Research Internships in Cell Analysis and Modeling

The Center for Cell Analysis and Modeling annually hosts a number of summer undergraduate students with strong backgrounds in the physical sciences, engineering and mathematics. They work in our laboratories for 10 weeks. CCAM's quantitative and interdisciplinary research addresses fundamental questions of how the spatial organization of molecules in cells is established and how it is utilized to control cell function.

CCAM Events

Events Calendar

Research projects include

  • Developing and applying optical methods for quantitative measurement of molecular events inside living cells
  • Developing and applying methods for molecular level manipulation in living cells
  • Computational modeling and simulation of cellular physiology using the Virtual Cell modeling and simulation software (
  • Developing algorithms and software tools to further  enhance the Virtual Cell modeling software

There are two (mutually supportive) ways to get into CAM undergraduate program:
