Assembling the pieces of nature’s puzzle of cures and products friendly to the environment requires a creative scientific approach. Taking your biology and environmental science studies abroad means the chance to gather data on beetles and frogs in a Brazilian rainforest, evaluate hemp wood as a viable building material for a girls’ school in South Africa, or test contaminated groundwater in suburban communities in Hong Kong.
Things you can do abroad as a biological or environmental science major:
- Research a potential malaria vaccine alongside world-class scientists in Singapore
- Contribute to cutting edge research on climate change and coral reef degradation in Australia
- Perform clinical research in a hospital working alongside a dermatologist in Spain
- Work in a lab sequencing RNA amongst scientists from around the world in Scotland
- Investigate the anatomy of cancer at the biochemical level in Korea
- Use MRI technology to explore the relationship between the brain and obstructive sleep apnea in Australia
