Faculty Accepting Students for Rotations and Research

The faculty members listed below have indicated that they have openings in their labs for rotations and/or research projects. Rotations in the lab are conducted early in a student’s degree to allow them to decide which research cluster to choose for their degree specialization. Research placements are chosen once a student has decided on a research cluster, mentor, and thesis research project. This applies to Master’s of Sciences (Research option) and Ph.D. students. Medical Sciences Master’s students do not complete a thesis, and therefore do not need to perform lab rotations or acquire a research placement.

Please note that this list does not contain all faculty members of each cluster. Only professors within the clusters currently accepting students are listed.
