Undergraduate research is a great way for a pre-professional health student to prepare for his/her respective graduate school and health field. Working on a research project will also help deepen a student's thinking around the scientific method; apply laboratory procedures and concepts learned in courses in a relevant way; and develop a closer rapport with faculty mentors and other students.  Pre-professional health students engaged in research projects should work to present their findings to a broader audience through publications, conference presentations, poster sessions, and seminars.

Students are encouraged to approach their individual professors to inquire about the possibility of engaging in research projects.  Read the article,  "How to Get Lab Experience" to learn more. Follow the links below to learn about some current research opportunities available at EKU and beyond.
