Open Opportunities

Shook Lab

The Shook Lab is looking for a BMM MS student to develop MATLAB scripts for the analysis of microscope-generated images. The exciting and flexible opportunity can be expanded into a Thesis project or quickly developed as a side project to allow students to gain experience working with wet-lab scientists through analyzing tissue sections. All efforts, big or small, will be appropriately recognized in subsequent publications. Please contact Dr. Brett Shook ( with your interests and qualifications for this project.
