In the Winter and Spring of their first year, students are required to perform 10-week, graded rotations through laboratories of interest. Since the student will choose their thesis lab during these rotations, it is critical that serious thought and effort (reading papers, talking to the PI and lab members, etc.) be given before choosing the labs. Students should contact prospective laboratories in the preceding quarter to ensure that space/resources are available. In the following quarter, students will present an overview of their project and results from their rotation. A third, optional rotation can be performed during the summer quarter. It is expected that a student will have chosen their thesis research lab no later than the end of their first year.
