Program Overview

Program Description:
Georgia State offers many summer and maymester programs led and taught by Georgia State professors. These programs tend to be focused on a particular topic or theme and range from 10 to 20 participants, though some are larger. Students participate in lectures, site visits, excursions, and tours as part of the program. These programs usually last between two and six weeks. Students find these programs a great way to really get to know their professors and other GSU students while earning GSU credits and grades. Students do not have to study on a program related to their major, but they certainly can. Financial aid and scholarships are available.

The purpose of this program is to expose undergraduate and graduate students to the diversity of marine invertebrates and associated marine microbes, and the bioactive natural compounds that they can produce. In this program, students will be involved in every step of research, including sample collection, processing, and screening for both bioactive natural products and natural product biosynthetic genes. This program will give them exposure to a wide variety of techniques in microbiology, drug screening, and molecular biology. They will also get to interact and work closely with Egyptian students (6-8) who will participate in the course, which will significantly enrich their experience.
