Center for Science and Technology Research (CSTR)
Hall Memorial Building N318
Home to an array of multimillion-dollar laboratories specifically designed for deaf scientists, the Center for Science and Technology Research (CSTR) is a beacon on the Gallaudet University campus. Here, students work side-by-side with world-class deaf faculty across a variety of disciplines including Molecular Genetics, Ecology, Pharmacology, Chemistry, Bioinformatics, Computational Chemistry, Information Technology, and Mathematics.
The CSTR offers Gallaudet students paid and unpaid undergraduate research experience during the school year for course credit or as paid research opportunities. In addition, Gallaudet students have also secured paid internship opportunities during the summer.
Our students have won research poster awards at UMBC Undergraduate Research Symposium in the Chemical and Biological Sciences, Maryland Water Monitoring Council Annual Conference, NASA DC Space Grant Consortium, and CIQM Poster Sessions at Harvard University.
