The goal of this course is to have students participate in research in close collaboration with a faculty, post-graduate student, or researcher. They will learn laboratory methods, about the scientific method, and about the specific project they are working on. Students will gain a background in a specific scientific problem or research topic, learn about how this will be addressed, and participate in the research required to address this topic. This course will include a self-contained research project that can be completed over one semester. Continuing research over more semesters must include discrete projects that can be part of a greater whole. Students may work on a project designed by their faculty supervisor or of their own design, with approval from their faculty supervisor. As part of this course, students must design a research-style poster for display, and prepare a short presentation regarding their research.
