Research Opportunity: The role of mitochondria and metabolism in the development of human diseases

Con­tact Name: Rong Tian

Con­tact Email: rongtian[at]uw.edu

Depart­ment: Anesthesiology, Bioengineering, Biochemistry


We are looking for students to work with mouse models of altered mitochondrial function and/or cell metabolism to investigate disease mechanisms.  The student will be involved in treatment of mouse models, monitoring physiological function of multiple organ systems, and biochemical analysis of tissue samples.  Molecular and genetics analysis will be included in the later stage of the project.


Comfortable to work with animals.
General knowledge of biology, biochemistry and physiology.
A minimum of 10 hours per week needed.

Summer Research: UT-Knoxville Dept of Biochemistry and Cellular and Molecular Biology

Department of Biochemistry and Cellular and Molecular Biology

Sensing and Signaling in Biological Systems

Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

The BCMB Department at UT-Knoxville will once again offer a special REU program for undergraduates interested in hands-on scientific research experience.

The broad focus is on Sensing and Signaling in Biological Systems. The team of REU faculty represent multiple modern scientific disciplines including cell biology, molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, physical chemistry, and computational biology.

We especially encourage rising sophomores and rising junior undergraduate science majors to apply.

Underrepresented minorities, women, and first generation college students are also strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be a US citizen or a permanent resident.

 More information and on-line applications are available at our web site at: http://web.bio.utk.edu/bcmb/summer/reu.html  or email bcmbreu@utk.edu.
