workshop, please refer the students to my email, [log in to unmask]
<mailto:[log in to unmask]> . (Robert Kwong).
The workshops are videotaped and those students may choose to watch the
video at a later time. If however they do prefer a live workshop, they
should send Robert Kwong an email to the address above. hE will work with

OHLPA office strongly suggests that they EITHER read the pre-health handbook

is more meaningful if they have done one or the other.

experimental procedures, and chemically analyzing biological
samples.  Further personal research in a more focused area can be
formed into an individual thesis project. The minimum time requirement is 10
lab hours per week in blocks of

hours a week seem to have a more meaningful experience.  We are
looking for at least a one-year commitment.If you are interested in being
