When talking with a professor about their research, donít be afraid to pitch in new relevant ideas that complement the goals in their lab. Itís good to think big, but be realistic about your idea because of the availability of resources, funding, and time. Professors are always on the lookout for impactful ideas that can make a huge difference. Whether it is improving a protocol in their lab or introducing a new technique, there is a limitless pool of ideas to take out of. Even though you are an undergrad now, itís never too early to start thinking like a graduate student.
