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 Pritzker Institute of Biomedical Science and Engineering announces RES-MATCH for the summer 2022 session.
  • Want to have an energetic undergraduate student doing research in your laboratory?  
  • Want to provide a talented student with an opportunity to experience research?
  • Want to prepare data or perform an experiment for a grant application?
  • Want to pursue a new area of research?
If yes, then RES-MATCH is for you.

By participating in RES-MATCH, Illinois Institute of Technology faculty members can define a one-semester biomedical science or biomedical engineering research project with a student, and the Pritzker Institute will provide support for both the student and the faculty mentor’s laboratory. The project should detail clear milestones achievable during the IIT summer sessions. 

Interested faculty members should apply for one or more research projects by emailing the name of the project and a short description, including minimum deliverables required to be completed by the student, to Michael Barry ( and Karen Caruso (

Students recommended by faculty for RES-MATCH must be:
  • IIT undergraduates, and
  • New to the faculty member's laboratory (RES-MATCH is not intended as a means of supporting students currently working in a faculty member’s laboratory).
Students accepted for RES-MATCH support will receive a $500 research award and the faculty mentor will receive $500 for the research laboratory. The Pritzker Institute will select projects for posting and approve student-mentor matches.

All Illinois Tech faculty members are encouraged to apply with projects that are related to or have an association with biomedical science or engineering. Please contact Michael Barry ( with any questions about the suitability of any project or idea.
