In general, costs of research supplies and equipment are covered by grants or contracts held by the faculty member in whose laboratory research is carried out.
Travel to Scientific Meetings
Attendance at scientific meetings is an important part of graduate education. Limited travel funds are available to students in years 1-3. Students should see the Genetics Registrar regarding the travel/supply allowance and provide the following information: title, place and time of the meeting; relevance to the research; title and authors of paper being presented (if applicable); amount required for travel, registration, food, and lodging. Preference for travel funds will be given to students who have passed the qualifying examination and especially to students scheduled to present a paper or a poster at the meeting.
Travel Advances and Expense Reports for students in years 1-3 are processed through the Graduate Program Office by the Genetics Registrar.
Use of Computers
Most labs are well equipped with computers or other shared resources for graduate students to analyze data for their dissertations.
The graduate student lounge is equipped with a Mac computer and HP LaserJet IV printer for exclusive use by graduate students.
