EDUCATION

For both undergraduate and graduate students, one of the more important aspects of a student's education is independent research.  Students have to master a range of techniques to address their research questions.  Importantly, these questions should form a coherent thesis: research that develops and addresses an original scientific question. 

 

The pivotal goal is to engage the student in learning how to do science (proper controls and experimental design) and how to analyze and present the data. In many cases, the process in itself is more important than the single question. The reason it is more important is that invariably the student will pursue different research projects in his/her life, and knowing how to accomplish new and innovative research is more important than the answer to single question.
