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).
A REX student can be any undergraduate student interested in research, regardless of the field. We have mentors spanning Arts, Sciences, Applied Sciences, and Medicine. With over 100 mentors REX is among the largest student run mentorship programs in North America.
