What is REX?
REX is a six-month long program designed to help undergraduate students build essential research skills through a prospective research project (no results, lab time, or lab resources required). The skills acquired by the prospective students include:
- Answering research questions
- Understanding how to perform literature reviews
- Synthesizing an experimental design
- Creating & printing a research poster
- Learning how to present a research poster
We are currently looking for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows who are interested in committing a minimum of 3 hours each month to act as a mentor. It is a great opportunity for graduate students to gain mentorship, leadership, and management skills. Furthermore, the REX program assists mentors on the lookout for promising students to take into their lab through direct evaluation for 6 months (October to March).
