Choosing a Rotation Lab
I was just admitted into a biomedical-sciences training program, with a focus on informatics. I now have to find four faculty members to complete rotations with. I believe the first two will occur during the Fall semester, the next two during the Spring, and then I will have to choose my adviser.

Anybody have advice? What should I look for in a potential adviser besides having research interests that align? Should I also be sending emails out now or waiting until the semester actually starts?

Thanks for the advice.. just super nervous to start.
