“Engaging Undergraduates in Research at Scale: What if the treatment is a CURE?”

Erin Dolan is the founding Executive Director of the Texas Institute for Discovery Education in Sciences (TIDES) in the College of Natural Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin. TIDES aims to integrate the teaching and research missions of the university by supporting experiential learning for undergraduates, offering professional development for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty, and evaluating the effectiveness of innovative science education programming.  Dolan’s research focuses on understanding science research as an educational context. Her group studies scalable ways of engaging high school and undergraduate students in science research and mentoring of undergraduate researchers, with special attention to how different students gain access to research experiences and realize positive outcomes, or not, from participating in research. She is principal investigator or co-investigator on more than $6 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, and other agencies, and Editor-in-Chief of the leading biology education journal, CBE – Life Sciences Education.
