Our work is not possible without the assistance of undergraduate students. You can do an independent study, honor’s thesis or volunteer your time to obtain valuable research experience. If you are interested, contact David Marquez to schedule a meeting.

Here’s what some of our undergraduate lab alumni have to say:

Being part of the BAILA research team was an awesome experience. I loved getting to know all of the graduate students as well as the URAs.

It just takes this experience to a whole other level, to have someone open up to you about his or her health and to know that you are working with a program that could benefit him or her.

It’s been a very rewarding experience working with so many goal-oriented individuals passionate about the health of our community.

Working in this lab, has also served as a constant reminder of the struggles our Hispanic community faces on a daily basis as well as a reminder as to why health disparities research, such as Dr. Marquez’s is relevant and important.

I believe working in research has helped me with time management, patience and a larger appreciation for the well-being of the older population the study is involved with.
