Join Us for First Undergraduate Research Funding Match Event (RES-MATCH)

  • Are you an energetic undergraduate who wants to work in an Illinois Tech research laboratory?
  • Do you want an opportunity to take part in a semester-long immersive research project?
  • Do you want a research experience that can prepare you for your professional career?
  • Are you wanting to learn about a new area of research?

If yes, then RES-MATCH is for you.

RES-MATCH is an event that matches students who have research interest with faculty members with research needs. Illinois Tech faculty members from across the university have developed one-semester projects associated with biomedical science or biomedical engineering. Each project is suitable for completion by an individual undergraduate student with the Spring 2020 semester.

At the RES-MATCH event, each faculty member will present their project using one slide with one minute to an audience of students. Following the presentations, students can contact the presenting faculty members to discuss if their interests and skills match with a project, and obtain a recommendation for specific project. Each student is limited to one project.

Students who complete a RES-MATCH project will receive $500 research award from the Pritzker Institute. It is anticipated that up to 30 projects and students will be supported in the Spring 2002 semester.

RES-MATCH will be held January 23, 2020 from 12:45–1:45 p.m. in the University Technology Park atrium. Come to learn about research work and to apply for a match.

All Illinois Tech students who have an interest in biomedical science or engineering are encouraged to attend RES-MATCH and apply for matching projects.

All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to attend the RES-MATCH event to learn about–and celebrate–Illinois Tech research.

A faculty selection committee will select the matched students and projects. Following the selection process, the projects will begin in early February.
