Graduate-Students-in-Residency Program - A Partnership with McWane Science Center’s World of Water Aquarium

Divers in Mcwane Center Aquarium The Department of Biology has partnered with McWane Science Center’s World of Water Aquarium to create a Graduate-Students-in-Residency program. The GSR program provides students with opportunities to conduct research in animal physiology, evolution, coral reef ecology, tropical marine ecosystem conservation, and developmental biology. Learning from UAB’s world-class biologists and working with a variety of marine life at McWane Science Center gives students the chance to apply their textbook knowledge in the field. The hands-on experience gained from researching in a lab helps propel these students and their future careers in biology. Students will graduate from the McWane GSR program possessing the qualitative and quantitative skills necessary to conduct research and teach aquatic or marine biology.
