We know one of the most valuable ways to learn biology is by actually doing it. Research is one great way to do that. As an undergraduate, getting involved in research can help you hone your hands-on skills, build your communication and collaboration capabilities with peers and faculty, learn how to ask and answer new questions, explore areas of interest, gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of the world around us and potentially earn academic credit. These experiences can be incredibly beneficial to your future career, regardless of your aspirations, as you learn from these opportunities and gain new knowledge and skills.
