Undergraduate research played a big role career of bioengineering associate professor Sheng Zhong, and his Systems Biology Lab at the Institute of Genomic Research is providing the same opportunities that he took advantage of when he was an undergraduate student.

“My own career started like that,” Zhong said. “My undergraduate major was mathematics, but what I’m working on now is molecular biology. It was my undergraduate work that got me started doing genomics and eventually biology.”

Zhong's lab is one of many research opportunities that undergraduate students can take advantage of within the College of Engineering, with around a handful of undergraduate students working in the lab every year.
