Choosing a Research Lab
To find a research lab, read more about the research labs in our faculty. Before you choose a lab, we suggest you prepare a list of labs in which you have a professional interest, and consult with our advisors on different areas of research.
Please make sure that the lab in which you are interested is active (employing both technicians and students) and productive (as indicated by regular publication in quality journals). We recommend you read the lab’s latest publications.
Email the director of the lab in which you are interested, describing your particular areas and topics of interest and indicating your desire to meet and visit the lab. During your visit, talk to the students working in the lab about the nature of their lab work and the treatment they are receiving.
It is extremely important that you devote serious preliminary effort to finding a suitable lab in terms of both scientific quality and interpersonal relationships.
