As part of The Center for Engineering MechanoBiology (CEMB), a National Science Foundation (NSF) Science and Technology Center (STC), CEMB graduate fellows participate in intensive “Boot Camp” experience, held every other summer. Fellows usually participate within the first two years of joining the CEMB.

This CEMB Boot Camp includes lectures in cell biology, bioengineering, matrix biology, and plant biology and mechanics; wet and dry lab experiences in rheometry, basic cell and molecular biology techniques, basics plant biology techniques, and computational modeling; small group tutorials; journal clubs; and ethics and knowledge transfer training.

Boot Camp also includes a mini-research experience and presentation at the conclusion of the course.
