Get Involved!

Our research labs often include student research assistants at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Students include those from CDS, as well as other UB Departments, including Psychology, Linguistics, and Computer Science. 

Students often present their work at local, regional, and national conferences, including the Annual ASHA Convention and the American Academy of Audiology.

Students seeking to gain research experience are encouraged to read about the different laboratories in the CDS department, and email the Director of the research lab they are interested in to learn more.
