Description/Abstract

Group-Effort Applied Research (GEAR) was developed to expand undergraduate opportunities in life science research. The curriculum delivers concept-driven lecture material and provides hands-on training in the context of an active research project from the instructor’s lab. Because GEAR is structured as a class, participating students benefit from intensive, supervised research training that involves a built-in network of peer support and abundant contact with faculty mentors. Three GEAR classes involving three distinct research projects have been offered to date. In this presentation, we will provide an overview of the GEAR format and review some of the recurring themes for GEAR instruction.
