What to do after joining a lab:
- (Immediately after) Send them a thank you e-mail and tell them how excited you are to work in the lab!
- Get to know your Grad student mentor (if possible) - they are your connection to your PI
- Feel out the lab culture
- Try to find an undergrad that has experience with the lab to be able to ask questions to
- First impressions are everything - do not slack off just because you got in!
