SCILL Master Internships
The Schuele laboratory has been the proud host for the San José State University Consortium for Stem Cell Internships in Laboratory-based Learning (SCILL) master program. This program is supported by a grant from the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (EDUC2-08394).
In the Schuele laboratory, we provide students a 12-month, full-time internship in stem cell research aimed at generating human induced stem cell models of Parkinson's Disease.
Undergraduate Projects in the Schuele Lab
Research topics: The Schuele lab works on gene discovery and novel stem cell technologies to generate stem cell models from patients with Parkinson’s disease and related disorders to understand the underlying causes of neurodegeneration and to develop biomarkers and new therapies for neurodegenerative diseases.
Seeking undergraduate for: Academic year, Summer
Required skills: Previous wet lab experience - Basic experience in molecular biology techniques
This lab is particularly interested in mentoring: Undergrads from backgrounds that are underrepresented in STEM, Undergrads without previous exposure to laboratory research
