Research experiences for students are designed to stimulate the imagination and instill
a sense of responsibility and commitment to generating new knowledge. Students will
delve into the literature that forms the foundation for their research, learn a variety
of research techniques, and sharpen their communication skills.
PCOM investigators are committed to training students in research methodologies. In
turn, students contribute to formulation of hypotheses, data collection and sharing
of information in a collegial atmosphere within the laboratory, patient care center
or clinical research facility.
Here’s How to Get Involved:
- Read our research related webpages on pcom.edu.
- Follow the links to the individual research focus areas of interest to you.
- Within the focus areas pages are links to individual faculty’s research page.
- Additional information about faculty research can be obtained by reading their publications
listed in Digital Commons. Direct links to Digital Commons are provided on the faculty
- Review the listings for on- and off-campus research projects located in the Student
Research Opportunities page accessed through the Student Research site in my.pcom.edu.
- Attend the Faculty Research Forum event to receive the most current information on
thesis and part time research opportunities.
- Contact faculty to discuss research projects.
- Review the guidelines for student conduct in the laboratory located within the Student
Research page in my.pcom.edu.

through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) program website.
Your faculty mentor/principal investigator will guide you to other courses that are
pertinent to your project.
- Approach your work with enthusiasm and dedication. What you learn from this experience
will translate into other aspects of your professional life.
