How Can Undergraduates Get Involved in This Lab?
This work requires a basic understanding of the R programming language (data manipulation, plotting, regression, etc.) and an ability to run command line tools commonly used in genetics research. In general, undergraduate students work as volunteers, though we have had success with students getting compensated through ICRU support. Students are paired with a graduate student mentor in the lab and are expected to maintain weekly hours. Students who help with computational work typically (but not always) major in computer science, biomedical engineering, and statistics.

Human Subjects Research:
Our research team includes a number of undergraduate students who help us recruit, collect, and enter data. Undergraduate students typically obtain direct experience with children and adults with and without neurodevelopmental conditions. Students generally work as volunteers, but may be able to receive academic credit. Students who help with human subjects research typically (but not always) major in psychology, speech and hearing science, and more.

Wet Lab & Benchwork:
Undergraduates primarily obtain experience with next-generation sequencing work, including DNA quantification and performing library preparation. Students who help with computational work typically (but not always) major in biology, chemistry, and biochemistry.
