Zhongtao Zhang, Ph.D.
Laboratory rotations for Ph.D. students in individual faculty laboratories. Three rotations are required (three credits per rotation). These rotations are meant to introduce the incoming graduate student to laboratory research by immediate participation in ongoing faculty research. Through this work, students will learn basic laboratory techniques but, just as important, will be introduced to the process of bench science and data analysis. The evaluation of the student’s progress will be based on his/her a) ability to execute bench experiments, b) ability to critically evaluate the experimental results, c) ability for problem solving, and d) acquisition of a basic knowledge of the literature that provides a background context for the project
Prerequisites: Open to Ph.D. students only.
Research. Hours to be assigned. Pass/Fail. May be taken three times.
