Lab Rotations

IQ Biology students rotate in three different labs across multiple departments in their first year within the IQ Biology faculty network. Rotation research is an opportunity to explore potential advisors, different departments, and new research techniques.
In their first academic year, IQ Biology students rotate in three different labs withing the IQ Biology participating faculty network, across multiple departments. Rotation research is an opportunity to explore potential dissertation advisors, different departments, and new research techniques.

All first‐year IQ Biology students will participate in three, 10‐week research rotations. Students must choose three different labs in at least two different departments/disciplines to gain laboratory, experimental, and computational skills. Research rotations should fit with your research interests but challenge you to learn new techniques and introduce you to ideas outside of your primary discipline. For both semesters of the first year, students conducting research rotations sign up for three credits of CHEM 6901‐898 per semester for a grade.

In addition to the IQ Biology participating faculty listed on our website, it is possible to rotate in the labs of any of the faculty from our participating departments by arrangement (which IQ Biology staff will help facilitate).
