Student Research: What To Expect

Written by    Jun 28, 2017

Undergraduate student research has been one of the absolute greatest things I have done during my time at Ohio State. When I was a wee little freshman just a few short years ago, you wouldn’t have been able to convince me that I would be full-time student research assistant and getting published in REAL medical journals by age 20.
