Fulkerson Lab

  • Training in the Lab

    The Fulkerson Lab provides training for postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, pediatric fellows, medical students and undergraduate students. We are committed to a team approach to our science and research program and highly value input from all members of the lab. In addition to one-on-one meetings, the members of the Fulkerson Lab meet once a week to review data, discuss ideas and review progress. We also have bimonthly Lunch & Learn sessions in which we gather together to learn about a new technique or delve deeper into a new area of research from invited speakers. Sharing our work with the scientific community is an important aspect of the training experience as it allows us to develop presentation skills and to gain feedback and insight from other knowledgeable investigators.
