Description/Abstract

Students gain many benefits from their participation in undergraduate research. Unfortunately, the one student one mentor paradigm Friday, October 8th, Abstracts 6 | www.researchsymposium.ucf.edu www.researchsymposium.ucf.edu | 7 is limited to a few select students. The Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences at UCF educates 2,300 undergraduates majoring in either Biotechnology or Molecular Biology and Microbiology. About 90 students work on research projects in BSBS faculty labs. This is a substantial number, but it only represents 4% of BSBS undergraduate majors. To address the limited availability of undergraduate research positions, BSBS has developed alternative programs such as PILOT to provide substantial numbers of students with practical, hands-on training in the life sciences.
