Strain or plasmid requests

To requests strains or plasmids, please write directly to our lab manager, Beverly Neugeboren (bneugeb@mcb.harvard.edu). For FedEx shipping, we need an account number for billing as well as a your complete address and phone number. If you would prefer shipment by US mail, we just need the address.

When requesting strains or plasmids, please refer to the precise name used in the paper, not just the paper. This will expedite your order.

Summer Internships

All of the internships in our group must be applied for through our Center's summer internship program: Summer Internships

The internships will be offered to undergraduate students from US universities. Underrepresented minority students and students from disadvantaged backgrounds are particularly encouraged to apply. We consider applications from rising sophomores, juniors and seniors.

Interns will receive a competitive stipend and Harvard housing. In addition to the research program, the internship includes field trips to local research institutes, weekly seminars, lectures by distinguished faculty, and social and career events coordinated with other Harvard internship programs.
