Online Training Modules
Each undergraduate trainee will be required to complete the University-Required online training modules that are appropriate for the research laboratory to which they will be assigned. All trainees are also required to complete the online Radiation Safety course. Trainees that will be working with investigators conducting research with animal models will be required to take Penn’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) training. This training includes an orientation to animal research web-based course and exam, and hand-on training with the species used in their preceptor’s laboratory. Each online module is followed by an exam Students will need to receive a score of 85% or higher before they will be allowed to begin their individual laboratory research experience.
Introduction to Laboratory Safety
During the first week of the program students will be engaged in lecture/demonstrations to introduce them to safe laboratory practice and commonly used techniques in radiation-related research.
