Karginov Lab Summer Research

Karginov Lab Summer Research

The Karginov Lab in the Department of Molecular, Cell, and Systems Biology is accepting current UCR CNAS Undergraduates with prior summer research experience in programs such as RISE, MSRIP, UC LEADS, CNAS Scholars, CAMP, etc. to participate in an 8-week summer research project with potential for academic year continuance and funding.

Research Project:

The Karginov lab studies gene regulation by RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) and microRNAs, and the cellular roles that result from this regulation for specific RBPs. We examine the molecular pathways and functions of RBPs using a combination of high-throughput molecular biology, genetics, and cell biology experiments. In this project, we are interested in using CRISPR/Cas9 technology to create RBP knockout cell lines and use them to study interactions between RBPs and microRNAs on mRNAs.

  • When:      July 6 through August 27, 2021 (8-weeks)
  • Where:    UCR campus (Karginov Lab)
  • Up to 30 hours per week of research and programming
  • Stipend:  $3,000
  • Part of the Research In Science & Engineering [RISE] Program
  • Current UCR CNAS Undergraduate in good academic standing
  • Interested in molecular biology, mRNA, CRISPR/Cas9 (prior lab experience preferred)
  • Graduating Spring 2022 or later
  • Minimum 2.8 GPA
  • U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident per NSF grant guidelines
 Application: APPLY HERE
Deadline: June 27, 2021 or until full (rolling application, apply EARLY for best considerations)
