The Pritzker Institute launched the RES-MATCH program in Spring 2020 as part of an effort to provide undergraduate Illinois Tech students with hands-on research experiences with faculty. The program will continue for the Fall 2020 semester.


September 8 – 30, 2020

Sponsored by the Pritzker Institute

  • Are you an energetic UG student wanting to work in an Illinois Tech research laboratory?
  • Do you want an opportunity for a semester project immersed in research?
  • Do you want a research experience that can prepare you for your professional career?
  • Are you wanting to learn about a new area of research?

If yes, then RES-MATCH is for you.

The Fall Semester 2020 RES-MATCH Kick-off will be a virtual, month-long event for matching students with research interests to faculty members with research needs. Illinois Tech faculty members from across the university have defined one-semester projects associated with biomedical science or biomedical engineering for individual students. The projects are suitable for completion by an UG student within the Fall 2020 semester.

During this RES-MATCH kick-off event website, each faculty member will present their project using 1 slide and a 1-minute video or written description. Students can contact the project faculty member to obtain a recommendation to the Pritzker Institute for working on the research project. Look for new projects and updates daily through September 30, 2020, at which time project matching will end.

Students completing a RES-MATCH project will receive a $500 research award.

Students: Click here for RES-MATCH project descriptions that seek student researchers for the Fall 2020 semester. If you are interested in being matched to a project, please email the project mentor to learn about the project.

Each student can be recommended for only one project, so coordinate your desire to be matched with the project mentor. While you may question more than one mentor about their project, please request matching to only one project.

Mentors: Your project can be matched to only one student. Please inform the student that you are recommending them for a match to avoid confusion between projects.

Matching: Recommendations for matching will be evaluated by the Pritzker Institute. The student and mentor will be notified of the match decision. If the match of a student and project are not approved, that student may ask another mentor for matching to their project. If the match is approved, then the student and faculty mentor will receive instructions for the project completion in the fall semester and each obtaining the $500 research award.
