Faculty Mentors

Research Projects available to URM Students


Hamming it up in the field We have recruited 19 faculty from 8 different departments to act as potential mentors to URM students. The faculty are arranged in 3 core areas of biological science: 1) Ecology & Evolution, 2) Physiology, Cell & Molecular Biology, and 3) Natural Resource Management. This approach enables students and mentors within a core area to closely share interests with their peers, while also providing breadth of options for prospective students and opportunities for cross-disciplinary discussion and collaboration. The following provides a brief description of research projects available to URM students. Please note that due to professors' various schedules, not all 19 faculty may be available to act as a mentor for a particular student cohort.
