Thesis Research

Students are involved in research from the start. During the first year, students complete three 10-week rotations. Students are expected to select a lab and to embark on a dissertation research project by the beginning of the first summer. All students are expected to have two mentors on their dissertation projects. After their fifth semester, progress in research is reviewed annually.
