Collaboration, Computation, Communication
A new generation of scientists is coming of age in a world of increasingly collaborative and multidisciplinary environments, where life sciences research questions rely on computational solutions, and the ability to communicate results with a wide range of audiences is a key to success. The MU-HHMI C3 Program aims to influence science culture, offering undergraduate research experiences where MU students also regularly interact with the School of Journalism to promote science. Additional activities and events open to both MU and non-MU undergraduates include an intensive summer informatics institute, a regional conference in computational biology, and a science journalism forum. The C3 Program offers training and mentoring opportunities for K-12 students and educators as well as graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.

The C3 Program is supported in part by a grant to the University of Missouri from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute through the Precollege and Undergraduate Science Education Program.
