Purdue receives $1.5 million for undergraduate life science education

Life science students who will be responsible for solving the global challenges of tomorrow need an innovative educational experience to keep pace with advancing technology that can generate massive amounts of data. The 'culture of discovery' at a research university can help transform undergraduate education in the sciences. Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) has awarded $1.5 million to Purdue University to fund an undergraduate science education project entitled: Deviating from the Standard: Integrating Statistical Analysis and Experimental Design into Life Science Education. The collaborative project led by Dennis Minchella, professor and associate head of Biological Sciences, is a partnership among six faculty members from three colleges (Science, Agriculture, and Engineering) which plans to inject statistics and experimental analysis into the biology curriculum at all levels.
