Undergrads SURE about biomedical research
Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) students participate in a symposium Aug. 3 at the Medical Center. A total of 64 undergraduate students finished summer biomedical research programs at UMMC and presented their work at the symposium.
SURE gives students 10 weeks of hands-on biomedical research training in basic laboratory techniques and equipment and Friday lunchtime discussions on career paths by Medical Center faculty and post-doctoral fellows. It also pays a $3,500 stipend.
The School of Graduate Studies in the Health Sciences enrolled 33 students; the remaining 31 were enrolled in various other summer programs on campus.
“This is our main recruiting effort for the graduate school,” said Dr. Joey Granger, distinguished professor of physiology and graduate school dean. “We put a great deal of effort into making certain that students take away a positive scientific experience.”
