Program Information

What is the RBC

The Regenerative Bioscience Center (RBC) at the University of Georgia (UGA), brings together the collaborative research efforts of veterinarians, toxicologists, biochemists, medicinal chemists and pharmacologists. Our primary goals are to bridge the gap between basic science and clinical medicine, moving research from the laboratory setting into real life therapies and treatments. We add ideas, questions, new experiments and discoveries not yet uncovered by traditional basic research.

Program Overview

As a student you will gain research experience under the mentorship of internationally recognized academic scientists, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and industrial collaborators. Undergraduates gain direct experience with faculty, conducting research that leads to new discoveries, treatments, and new cures for the devastating diseases that touch all of our lives. Our students are uniquely positioned to apply for graduate and professional schools with the opportunity to have a very strong foundation on which to build a successful career.

The course will require approximately 10 – 15 hrs a week.
