Collaborative Research

As a four-year institution dedicated to undergraduates, Lycoming faculty place a heavy emphasis on education, and their research agendas are designed to cultivate student collaboration and academic discovery. This principle is core to our mission.

Students participate in semester-based research labs, as well as funded summer research collaborations across a spectrum of academic disciplines. The skills developed through these collaborations position Lycoming students to be successful in nationally-competitive summer research residencies.

Among the many research residency successes, recent Lycoming students have successfully won research positions at:

  • Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
  • Rosetta Commons Summer Research Program, University of Washington
  • Genomic Medicine Institute, Geisinger Health System
  • Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Cornell University
  • University of Pittsburgh Medical Center
  • Space Telescope Science Institute, Baltimore, Md.
  • Department of Neuroscience, University of Florida
  • BioDiscovery Institute, University of North Texas
  • National Radio Astronomy Observatory, Socorro, N.M.
  • Johns Hopkins Space Telescope Science Institute
  • David Library of the American Revolution
  • Nobeyama Radio Observatory, Japan
  • University of Hawaii’s Institute for Astronomy
  • Neutrino and Dark Matter Laboratory National Autonomous University of Mexico
  • Molecular Biology and Genetics REU at Cornell University
