To align our personal and shared team goals, we focus on developing each member of our team as described under Team Personal Development. Our team is diverse in backgrounds, experiences, and aspirations. Every year we accept 10 to 20 students.
Our team members publish papers, present at national conferences, and are successful at securing project funding. In the past 4 years, our team has mentored 96 individuals (11 undergraduates, 83 graduate students, 2 postdoctoral fellows, and 2 faculty):
- 25% of whom were under-represented minorities
- 33% of mentees co-authored papers presented at national or international professional meetings
- 25% are co-authors on articles in peer-reviewed journals (published or submitted)
- 35% received competitive funding to support their research experience from internal and external sources
