Lab Site Coordinators (listed above) are the primary point of contact between a partner lab site, the STAR Program, Program Staff, and STAR Fellows at a particular location and perform several key services. Also known as Education and Public Outreach (EPO) Staff, they:
- Identify Research Mentors able and willing to support STAR Fellows during the summer and provide project descriptions for STAR Applicants.
- Coordinate STAR Fellow interviews with Research Mentors and coordinate summer placement between Fellow, Research Mentor, and Program staff.
- Provide Fellows with lab space, supplies, equipment, access credentials, and safety training needed to participate in the research.
- Educate Research Mentors about STAR Program goals, expectations, and deadlines.
- Coordinate site activities and evaluations with Workshop Leaders
- Coordinate STAR Fellow orientations, presentations, and seminars on site.
- Whenever possible, participate in STAR Program conferences and events.
