Global laboratory

“An investment in undergraduate research is also an investment in our common future. The Global Laboratory will produce a new generation of scientifically and internationally skilled problem solvers, empowered to meet the challenges before us.”
Deborah F. Stanley

The Global Laboratory is an innovative undergraduate research experience offering students hands-on, immersive problem-solving opportunities in international laboratories in the most promising fields of study — science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

The Global Laboratory combines the international connections of SUNY Oswego faculty with the scientific talents, research proficiency, and intellectual curiosity of undergraduates to advance scientific knowledge, design solutions to the many intractable challenges of our time, and improve the quality of life for humans worldwide.

This pioneering laboratory empowers and uplifts students through the knowledge they gain and the life-changing experiences they encounter. Qualifying undergraduates spend two to ten weeks on any of the world’s seven continents conducting community-based research with leading scientists on projects designed to discover solutions to pressing global problems while promoting international understanding.
