Hematophagous parasites of nestling tree swallows

Summer 2014 SURF fellows ask, "Do hematophagous parasites compromise the
immune system of nestling tree swallows?"


Two programs provide summer research opportunities for Amherst College students: 1) the SURF program involves an 8-10-week commitment, and focuses on research in science, statistics, computer science, and mathematics fields, while 2) the SRP program runs for 6-8 weeks and supports students in all areas of academic research.
