Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships

About the SURF Programs

Are you an undergraduate science student, interested in scientific research and thinking about a career in Biomedical Research?  You can get the experience you need to prepare for graduate school and a career in this expanding field by participating in one of our summer research programs.

The SURF Programs are designed for sophomore and junior level students who are US residents.  Students must be able to commit to a 10-week program to do a research internship. 

SURF students are matched with an appropriate faculty advisor, based on mutual research interest. The advisor and intern design a specific research project within the context of the research focus of the advisor's laboratory. 

We typically award fellowships to 150 undergrads each summer to do clinical, translational, or basic biomedical research. You can apply to any or all of the following programs.
