The Vega Thurber Lab is packed at the moment, so we do not currently have plans to accept new students who do not have their own source of funding. If you've got a great research idea that you think would fit in our lab, NSF's Graduate Research Fellowship Program is one such source of funding that you should look into!

Prospective students and researchers should contact Becky for more information about opportunities in the Vega Thurber lab.
