Purdue UniversityPurdue

Located between Chicago and Indianapolis, Purdue is one of the nation’s largest public research universities, with over 200 areas of study. Science and engineering are especially strong here. SSP participants spend most of their waking time in the well-equipped laboratories and classrooms of the Biochemistry building, where other research includes everything from genome-wide transcriptional analyses and molecular genetics in human cells and model systems, to mass spectrometry and X-ray crystallography.
