Developing Future Biologists (DFB) is an educational outreach organization led by graduate students and postdocs at the University of Michigan. Our mission is to to ensure that the next generation of biologists, regardless of race, gender, or socioeconomic status, can learn the core concepts of developmental biology and are made aware of the vast opportunities that exist to pursue a career in the sciences.
DFB organizes a week-long summer short course aimed at teaching undergraduate students fundamental concepts in developmental biology in a small class setting with close instructor-student mentorship. Throughout the week students attend interactive lectures, hands-on lab sections, and professional development workshops. This is the fifth year of the DFB program, and its second year being held at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor campus.
All expenses of accepted students are covered by the program.
The short course will take place May 12-18, 2019, applications are due March 24th.
