Most all research opportunities require initial training(s) to help protect yourself and others. It is the student's responsibility to ask their faculty mentor which trainings are required to participate in research. 

Chemical Safety Trainings

First-time undergraduate researchers handling chemicals are required to attend an in-person training with the Chemical Safety Office. CURS hosts student-researcher orientated trainings once a semester, and additional trainings are held monthly with AU students, faculty, and staff.

Our next CURS-wide training will be held on Friday, January 20, 2023 from 2-4 pm in CB 2401. Please RSVP for the Spring 2023 training here.
