18 Jul UTMB’s GSBS Summer Undergraduate Research Program
The Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS) at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) is designed to provide stimulating hands-on research experience for undergraduate students considering graduate education in biomedical sciences.
The primary goal of SURP is to provide college students who have demonstrated outstanding scientific aptitude and an interest in biomedical sciences with the opportunity to experience research. SURP is designed to increase student motivation to pursue graduate education leading to careers in biomedical research and helps fill the national need for investigators capable of addressing new health problems as they arise.
Under the guidance of a selected faculty member, the student has the opportunity to learn the basic skills necessary to contribute to a research effort during a 10-week period. UTMB has 21 departments offering research opportunities for students interested in almost any area of biomedical research. These include, but are not restricted to: Molecular biology, toxicology, biochemistry, immunology, physiology, virology, genetics, microbiology and pharmacology.
