Welcome, Mentees!

What is REX?
The Research EXperience program (REX) exposes undergraduates to the research world. By connecting undergraduate students to graduate students or postdoctoral fellows, students with no prior experience work on a theoretical research project of their choice. REX allows students to learn from experienced mentors, develop their research skills, and present at one of BC’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 won't actually carry out the project, it should be feasible to complete during a Master’s or PhD. REX projects expose students to everything lab courses don’t – carrying out a project you are interested in, performing a complete literature review, and developing methods to answer a research question.
