Information for Students Accepted into the Lab

Once an applicant progresses at a high level with their UTSA safety training, annotated bibliograpy, paper presentation, and lab skills "boot camp," they are accepted into the lab.

Congratulations, but now that you have secured a position in the lab, there is more training that you must complete in order to actually conduct experiments and contribute to the research activities.
