Get the most from your research

Finding a mentor is just the beginning of your research experience. Once you've found a research home:

  • Be aware of the expectations that your research mentor has of you
  • Talk to your research mentor; no question is too simplistic if it helps you understand and do the experiment
  • Take the opportunity to learn about careers in science and to begin to build a network of people who will help you accomplish your goals
  • Above all, commit to your work and enjoy yourself
