Committee members change from time to time and are updated on this page. Committees are usually announced in early summer. Generally, the commitment on a committee is one year.
Lab Rotations and Professors on Parade
**Beginning Fall 2022, the lab rotation program will be three five week rotations, completed in the first semester. Students should expect to be placed in their thesis lab by the start of the spring semester of the first year.
Lab rotations give first-year grad students the opportunity to explore areas of interest as possibilities for Ph.D. research by working in labs for a five week period.
Profs on Parade provides faculty with an opportunity to showcase their lab's research to first year graduate students. First year students in the graduate program are required to attend the Profs on Parade sessions to gain an understanding of the research that is being performed in the various labs in the Department of Plant Biology & Microbiology as well as the Graduate Group in Microbiology. Profs on Parade will be during the week prior to the first day of class for Fall 2022.
