Summer Research Program
Discover the Possibilities!
Summer Research Program in the Biomedical Sciences: Overview
This NIH funded program is designed to increase the number of underrepresented students entering biomedical research and academic careers by providing short-term educational support in cardiovascular, pulmonary, and hematological research.
The 10-week summer research program is offered to undergraduate students and students in the health professional schools. The structure of the program is designed to be a mentored laboratory experience in an active UF research lab with an overarching weekly lecture series covering topics of interest to, and needed by, young scientists. At the end of the program students will present the results of their research projects in a seminar at the Health Science Center.
Students will be compensated with a stipend of $400 per week ($600 for health profession students). Travel funds are available for each student to attend a scientific meeting during the summer. Also, a housing allowance is available for those students who live outside of the Gainesville area and who would require living accommodations in Gainesville to attend the program.
A total of fifteen slots are available for Summer 2013: 13 undergraduate students and 2 health profession students. The duration of the program is 10 weeks: from June 3, 2013 to August 9, 2013.
