Laboratory Rotations and Research

To maximize flexibility, the program is designed so that entering students may choose between immediately joining the lab of a faculty research advisor or doing 2-3 lab rotations. A student who chooses rotations can subsequently elect to remain in a single lab or change their rotation schedule during the first year. Conversely, students who elect to join a lab immediately upon entering the program can transfer later to another lab. Students are encouraged to learn about the research interests of our entire faculty so that they can make an informed decision by the end of the first year about whether or not to change labs.
