How To Get Started on a 499:
- Life Science Bachelor of Science Honours Specialization students interested in pursuing a 499 project in their fourth year should contact professors after December of their third year unless a professor indicates a specific date. Please refer to the following websites for faculty associated with 499 projects (note: sometimes students will go outside of these but they will require approval - email email@example.com. http://dbms.queensu.ca/faculty and http://www.path.queensu.ca/People/Faculty_Primary.php and http://www.queensu.ca/phs/faculty-research/primary-faculty-0
- Students are expected to provide an unofficial transcript to their potential supervisor, thus confirming their eligibility for a 499 project.
- Once an agree has been made between you and a supervisor, please email firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know who your supervisor is and which one (i.e. ANAT, CANC, EPID, MICR, NSCI, PATH, PHAR, PHGY).
