What Is REX?

The Research EXperience program (REX) aims to expose undergraduates to the world of research. By connecting undergraduate students to mentors who are graduate students or postdoctoral fellows, students with no prior experience are able to work on their very own theoretical research project of their choice. REX allows students to learn from experienced mentors, develop and sharpen their research skills, and present at one of Canada’s largest undergraduate research conferences, the Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research Conference (MURC).

What Is a REX Project?

A REX project is a research project proposal. While you probably will not be able to carry out this project at this time, it should be a feasible project to complete over the course of a Master’s or Ph.D. REX projects expose students to everything lab courses don’t – carrying out a project of interest to you, performing a complete literature review, and developing methods to answer your research question.
