Training and educating the nation’s next generation of environmental scientists is critical to fulfilling UMCES-IMET's mission. While our faculty focuses on providing graduate level students opportunities to learn from and work with active biotech researchers, UMCES-IMET also offers programs designed to engage students of all ages. UMCES-IMET graduate students are enrolled in another USM degree-granting institution and conduct their research at IMET's Baltimore Inner Harbor Location.
Living Marine Resources Cooperative Science Center
Each summer, the Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology offers students an opportunity to conduct research in marine sciences applying molecular tools through the Living Marine Resources Cooperative Science Center (LMRCSC). The internship includes orientation to working in a lab, seminars on the use of molecular techniques in fisheries and environmental research, a one-day workshop on communicating science, and a research project with an LMRCSC-associated faculty mentor. The program runs nine weeks.
