Description/Abstract

Consider a faculty laboratory wherein the research assistants are both graduate and undergraduate students. Because it is likely that graduate assistants have richer research backgrounds, they add an important layer of mentorship to undergraduate assistants. Faculty advisors can enhance exposure to the scientific enterprise by appointing an undergraduate lab coordinator, allowing him or her to serve as a mentor as well. This model highlights the importance of the undergraduate research assistants in the laboratory. We wish to discuss this model as well as others in promoting exceptional research experiences for undergraduate protégés.
