Frontiers in Science (FIS) Program

The Frontiers In Science (FIS) Program is intended to introduce students from all disciplines and academic levels to the beauty and fun of scholarly pursuits in the natural and physical science disciplines, and to engage faculty in interdisciplinary and multi-institutional research activities.

The Frontiers In Science Summer Research Internship is available to the undergraduates at the University of Houston (UH) and Houston Community College (HCC). The selected students will participate in cutting-edge science research in the field of biological physics during a 10-week program housed at the Center for Theoretical Biological Physics at Rice University.

For more information on the FIS Student Internship Program or to apply, please visit University of Houston Undergraduate Research.

FRONTIERS IN SCIENCE SEMINAR SERIES

The Frontiers In Science Seminar Series, a part of the FIS program, consists of presentations in leading-edge interdisciplinary research in biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, and physics, as well as open discussions on opportunities in science as a career, research training internships for students, and faculty research collaborations.

Faculty members, graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in the Center for Theoretical Biological Physics (CTBP) give FIS seminars at UH and HCC throughout each academic year.

UPCOMING FIS SEMINARS:

At this time, there are no upcoming FIS seminars, the schedule for the Fall 2015 semester will be announced soon.
