Undergraduate Research

Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP)

SHPEP’s goal is to strengthen the academic proficiency and career development of students underrepresented in the health professions and prepare them for a successful application and matriculation to health professions schools. The 6-week program will take place on the University of Florida campus, with on-campus room and board.

Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program 

Our SURF program is designed to give students a research experience that focuses on Pharmacology & Therapeutics and includes both drug discovery and biological therapies. It is an immersive, 10-week program with mentored independent research, course work, and enrichment activities. It is designed to attract students from the state of Florida as well as from across the country.

Summer Neuroscience Internship Program

UF Department of Neuroscience is hosting a 10 week paid research internship (SNIP).  All students interested in a research career that have not been accepted for post-graduate training are encouraged to apply. We provide students with housing and a $400 per week stipend.  Preference will be given to students majoring in a biomedical-related discipline (for example: psychology, biology, engineering, chemistry, pharmacology, genetics).  No previous research training is required.

Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience Summer REU

The Whitney Laboratory Research Experience for Undergraduate program (REU), funded by the National Science Foundation (Site Award 0648969), offers an exceptional opportunity for the motivated undergraduate to participate in scientific research.

Undergraduate Research – College of Medicine

Undergraduate students who want to perform research for credit in the laboratory of a faculty member of the College of Medicine should enroll in BMS 4905, not the 4905 course of their respective home college, unless there is an overriding reason for not enrolling in BMS 4905.
