In addition to the courses listed below, we welcome driven high school, undergraduate, and graduate researchers in our lab. Over the past few years, over a hundred students have volunteered in our lab, working in a variety of projects ranging from muscular dystrophy to magnetic orientation. We strive to provide a complete research experience and therefore researchers in our lab are trained in every aspect of their projects (e.g. from reading the scientific literature to experimental design and techniques, analysis of data, and presentation of results at local and regional meetings). Many of our students are authors in over 60 posters presented by our lab. Several are also co-author scientific articles.

If you are an ISU undergrad, you can register for research hours through BSC290 or BSC299 thus earning credit for your work. High school students from Normal High School are also able to earn course credit for their participation in our research program. We try our best to customize the research experience to fit the needs and goals of each of our researchers.

Students at all levels can apply, and we particularly encourage sophomores and juniors to consider contacting us. We strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment for all people, regardless of sex, race, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, special needs, age, etc. Our lab is a diverse and welcoming environment. ​​​​​​​
