Signaling pathways that control the mammalian stress response - PHGY 396 Undergraduate Research Project Application Form

INSTRUCTIONS - PROFESSORS: Please print and review this form. Complete or correct the sections, as applicable, from "Supervisor's Name" to "Ethics, safety, and training". Please sign and date near the bottom ("Supervisor's signature").

INSTRUCTIONS - STUDENTS: You may receive this form by email, or you may download it after it has been posted here. Either way, print and review this form. Complete or correct the sections, from "Student's Name" to "Student's Level", and sign ("Student signature"). Ask your supervisor to sign her/his section near the bottom. Take it to the department* corresponding to the course number in Section A; this may or may not be your own department. (* EXCEPTIONS: For NSCI 396 and COGS 396, please bring it to the Interdisciplinary Programs Adviser in Dawson Hall.) Do not register for a '396' course on Minerva until you receive departmental permission. Have a discussion with your supervisor about time/work expectations, keeping in mind that this is a 3-credit course (roughly, 10 hours per week for 12 weeks). Remember that a '396' course is an elective.

INSTRUCTIONS - DEPARTMENTS: After the unit chair/director/designate approves (or not) this project, please notify student. If approved, please give student permission to register on Minerva, and send a copy of this form (with signatures) to the Office for Undergraduate Research in Science (either fax, or internal mail to Dawson Hall 408-A, or PDF scan + email).

Project title: Signaling pathways that control the mammalian stress response.

Project description (50-100 words suggested): The stress response is a critical factor for many diseases; it is also essential for the survival of harmful environmental conditions. Following  stress, cells stop protein synthesis to reallocate energy while minimizing damage. This protective mechanism promotes cell survival of cells and linked to changes in cell signaling.

It is the aim of this project to identify novel signaling pathways that control the stress response in mammalian cells.

Prerequisite: 2 terms completed at McGill + CGPA of 3.0 or higher; or permission of instructor.

Grading scheme (The final report must be worth at least 50% of final grade): Final report: 50%; Performance in lab: 50%

Other project information: The best way to reach me is by e-mail.

Project status: This project is open to applicant.

How students can apply / Next steps: Please send advising transcript by e-mail.

Ethics, safety, and training: Supervisors are responsible for the ethics and safety compliance of undergraduate students. This project involves: Handling chemicals
