Funding is now available for students wanting to apply for an Interdisciplinary Summer Undergraduate Research Program. Outstanding sophomore and junior students who are interested in research have the chance to participate in an intensive 10 week-long program exposing them to the breadth of opportunities available for advanced research. Students will conduct research in the departments of Genetics, Immunology, Molecular & Cellular Biology, Neuroscience, the Human Toxicology Program and the Free Radical and Radiation Biology Program. The funding stream is available from the summer of 2015 through 2019.
While the program gives students a window into the world of graduate research, it also provides them with a solid foundation for a career in the biological sciences. These summer programs are among the most effective tools in recruiting outstanding undergraduates to the University.
Successful applicants enjoy a stipend, and a contribution to travelling and living expenses.
