There is much to learn about and ways to prepare for research before stepping into a laboratory.  This experience is designed with modular content that allows you to pursue the topics of greatest interest across these three categories: 

  1. Professional Development Research Skills: These sessions will cover finding research, communicating with faculty and discussing research, professional behaviors in the lab, keeping lab notebooks/e-writing, research ethics and STEM Graduate School Applications. 
  2. Professional Laboratory Skill Development: These sessions will target research fundamentals and  laboratory skills, through a series of short courses that cover research basics in biology, materials science, physics, chemistry, and engineering, including microscopy, vacuum systems and thin films, electronic devices, and molecular biology skills. 
  3. Research Department Overviews: Led by faculty members and undergraduate researchers, these sessions will introduce students to the breadth of STEM research across departments at CWRU.

Additional program information can be found on the SOURCE website.
