Volunteering within a lab setting provides students with the unique hands-on experience that is not always available in academics.  Students have the opportunity to see all aspects of research, such as compiling relative scientific research, interacting with animal subjects, and conducting clinical trials.  Not only do these experiences help students make decisions regarding their future career path, they also provide valuable networks with professors, which are essential for many post graduate programs.


In order to volunteer in the HHNS, after contacting one of the below faculty members, please fill in and return the University of Guelph waiver form  to Anne Lovett-Hutchinson in ANNU 353.
