FISH Research

At Franciscan, research is not just reserved for a select few. Nearly 70 percent of Franciscan undergraduate science students participate in scientific research—an essential prerequisite for getting into and excelling in graduate school, medical school, and the scientific workforce.

With numerous on-campus, faculty-led research projects and off-campus summer internships, you’ll have a wealth of opportunities and locations to choose from, and professionals to work with, as you develop the critical thinking and problem-solving skills needed to uncover new and more effective means of treating disease, understanding addictions, healing the environment, and more!

So whether you’re a biology major who aspires to be an orthopedic surgeon, an engineering student eager to lead innovative national defense projects, or a biopsychology major who plans to advance pro-life policies through in-depth, peer-reviewed studies, Franciscan offers hands-on research opportunities for every science student.
