UNDERGRADUATES in the Pierce Lab supplement their educational experiences by working closely on actual projects, and routinely embark upon honors projects of their own.

The day-to-day life of an undergrad in our lab is varied. While there are occasionally less-interesting "housekeeping" projects involved, our undergraduates report their experiences as positive. Why? Our undergraduate students are more involved in actual science than many of their peers, making the experience fulfilling for both the student and the lab. Briefly put, the responsibilities of our undergraduates are great, but so are the potential rewards.

In addition, our undergraduates work under the direct supervision of a Ph.D. student in the lab, as well as Chris; their investment in a project is serious.

Can a student fit this work into the framework of an already busy life? Our current undergrads are involved in student government, resident life, and are leaders of various academic and social organizations across campus.

If you are a UPenn undergraduate and are interested in this opportunity, do not hesitate to contact Dr. Pierce.
