Undergraduate Training

The FLeDGE program facilitates reciprocal learning by pairing a graduate student or post doc (the mentor) with an undergraduate researcher conducting a senior thesis project in the Hopkins laboratory. The program requires a minimum 18-month commitment by both the undergraduate and mentor.

The goal of this comprehensive program is to prepare undergraduates for their upcoming transition to graduate school, while simultaneously preparing graduate students and postdocs for their eventual transition into a faculty position.
