Prospective PhD Students

(Updated July 2024)

Dr. Lauren Ng will not be accepting a graduate student for the 2025-2026 Academic Year

Unfortunately, due to time constraints and volume of applicants Dr. Ng and the current graduate students will not be able to respond if you send an email expressing interest in the lab.

We do not have enough time to set up individual phone or zoom calls with prospective students, and there is no need to email to introduce yourself or send your CV. However, we encourage you to view our recorded information sessions hosted by Dr. Ng and a graduate student panel. The recordings are posted here.

Please note, your decision to email Dr. Ng (or not) will have no impact on your odds of receiving an interview invitation or an offer of admission. Prospective students are instead encouraged to review our website which may answer many common questions about our research directions and our lab culture and values. 

Please see our Frequently Asked Questions Page for more information about applying to join the TRUST lab (Treatment and Research for the Underserved with Stress and Trauma) as a PhD student
