CABM Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE)

Undergraduate students conducting research in CABM laboratories have an opportunity to participate in a nine-week summer program. In addition to training and mentoring in individual laboratories, students meet weekly as a group with graduate student and postdoctoral program leaders to discuss and present their research projects and to learn about research challenges and career opportunities from faculty speakers. Many summer research scholars continue doing research in CABM laboratories for credit during the academic year and go on to graduate and medical schools and careers in science and biomedicine. CABM gratefully acknowledges corporate and private donations that support this program.

Students interested in research opportunities in CABM laboratories are encouraged to read about research projects being pursued in CABM laboratories and to contact individual faculty members directly to inquire about available positions. The 2021 summer program will run from June 1 to July 30. Applicants to the summer program who have already made arrangements to conduct research in a CABM laboratory should submit an application form by April 23, 2021.
