Students will be matched with a host lab/mentor who will oversee the student's research for the duration of the 10-week program. Lab assignments are made by the CUPID Program Co-Directors. Laboratory mentors are responsible for educating the students regarding standard laboratory procedures and safety. Students will spend most of each day - as well as some evenings and weekends as needed - working on their laboratory project, in direct partnership with the primary mentor and under the day to day guidance of experienced trainees in the lab. Upon completion of the 10-week program, students will present their project at an end of program symposium.
