I am a prospective graduate student who has not been admitted to University of Washington; how can I join your lab?
The BioRobotics Lab includes graduate students from many departments including (but not limited to!) Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Bioengineering. Prospective students are encouraged to apply through one of these departments; the BioRobotics Lab does not admit students directly. Please visit the relevant department webpages for information on applying to their respective graduate programs:

I am a prospective graduate student who has been admitted to University of Washington; how can I join your lab?
Congratulations on your acceptance to a graduate program at University of Washington! Joining the BioRobotics Lab as a graduate researcher depends on whether the lab’s faculty advisors currently have the time and funds to commit to mentoring a graduate student as well as the individual student’s skills and fit for the proposed project. Admitted graduate students who have found their own sources of funding (through applying for and receiving an NSF/NDSEG/other graduate fellowship) make it easier for our faculty advisors to say yes!
Admitted graduate students who are interested in working in the BioRobotics Lab can set up meetings during their department’s visit days with Howard Chizeck, Blake Hannaford, or Sam Burden depending on which projects are of interest to them. Admitted graduate students may also arrange to attend our lab meetings during the year in order to learn more about our research.
