Joining our laboratory - a few thoughts to consider:

I am actively seeking undergraduate and graduate students to work in my laboratory.


I believe that the opportunity to train the next generation of biomedical researchers is a highly-valued privilege.

That being said, biomedical research is often a laborious step-by-step process that requires planning, commitment, discipline, and teamwork:

  • Planning - the best experiments are done before entering the laboratory;

  • Commitment - research is often a "one step forward, two steps back" endeavor - you must keep at it;

  • Discipline - there are no short-cuts to research excellence;

  • Teamwork - research is a collaborative effort. Success in the laboratory occurs when everyone works as a team and willingly seeks out opportunities to help each other.

Interested undergraduate and graduate students need to recognize what will be expected if you join our laboratory. While I am more than willing to mentor and guide you along the way, your success in the laboratory will come ultimately from buying into these principles.

If you believe that you are a good fit for our laboratory and look forward to the challenge of studying cardiovascular physiology, click on the "Contact Me" tab and send me an email. Or, stop by my office (307 Ag Biotech) for a face-to-face chat.

I look forward to hearing from you!
