Let’s Zoom into Cambridge Biology Summer Program for Ages 16-18

Location

Founded in 1209, the University of Cambridge is the fourth-oldest university in the world and internationally renowned for its academic excellence, its beautiful college architecture and its prestigious and rich history. Are you ready to experience life as a Cambridge University student this summer?  All participants will be allocated to a college before arriving, based on their dates and subject choice. All colleges are central, historical, and have their own culture and character.

Course Description In small class sizes, you will be guided by expert tutors who have honed their expertise through teaching undergraduate students at world-class universities, including the universities of Cambridge, Oxford, and Harvard. You will explore novel concepts as in sample topics, mentioned below and share ideas in small groups of like-minded and ambitious peers from around the world.

Biology Course Sample Topics

  • Macromolecules Of Life: You will examine key biological macromolecules and explore their role in living systems. You will also learn about biological membranes and consider the idea of the membrane as a dynamic structure, through the concepts of membrane transport, cell signalling, and cell-cell recognition. In addition, you'll be introduced to the importance of Proteins, Carbohydrates, and Nucleic acids and discuss how these polymeric structures are constructed from simpler components.
  • **Cell Theory And Cell Structure: **The session will begin by consideration of some early pioneers of microscopy (Hooke and Leeuwenhoek) and the subsequent development of the Cell Theory. You will be reminded of the two fundamental cell types (prokaryotic and eukaryotic) and then review some of their key differences. You will also examine the role and functions of various cell organelles in a eukaryotic cell.
  • **Principles Of Bioinformatics: **Explore the importance of bioinformatics in life sciences. Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary science developed using concepts from biology, mathematics, computer science and statistics. You will explore how advances in the field of bioinformatics enabled the mapping of the entire human genome and genomes of many other organisms which led to the discovery of novel drug targets and revolutionised the field of molecular medicine.
  • How Will Advances In Biological Research Impact Upon Society?: Learn how to improve your scientific writing skills through a presentation or scientific essay, exploring how Biological research impacts upon society.

Accommodation

Your summer school includes experiencing living in actual student accommodation in historic Cambridge University colleges. You will spend 13 nights in a central college of the University of Cambridge. All rooms are single occupancy with shared bathroom facilities, typically at a one bathroom ratio per four participants.
