Laboratory Rotations

Laboratory rotations allow first year students to experience research in areas of their interest and to identify a faculty mentor with whom they will complete their dissertation research.  At the beginning of the first year, you will meet with program faculty and learn about the available research opportunities.  You will complete 3 rotations of approximately 3 months duration and present the results of your work in a poster presentation at the end of each rotation.  Your work will be graded by the mentor and by two judges of the poster presentation.  A passing grade of B or better is required in all rotations.

It is expected that you will identify your graduate laboratory and mentor by the end of the third rotation.  In exceptional circumstances, a student who has not identified a laboratory by this time will be allowed (with permission of the Program Director) to do a fourth rotation.
