Jayhawk Undergraduate Summer Training (JUST)
Undergraduate majors are encouraged to join a research lab over the summer to gain professional experience. This is particularly important for students entering their junior and senior years. For those undergraduates performing research, our JUST program consists of a series of lunch talks intended to introduce students to different areas of research and professional skills and a symposium at the end of the summer for students to present their research.
To stay up to date on summer happenings, email Dr. Delgado (firstname.lastname@example.org) to join the JUST slack channel.
