This Summer Undergraduate Research Program is for individuals that are motivated for success in careers combining medicine and research. Although we are especially interested in undergraduate students who are currently in their sophomore year of college, current freshman and juniors are also encouraged to apply. Some research background may be useful in order to maximize your laboratory experience.

This is a great opportunity for students to discover first-hand the broad spectrum of research activities being performed at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Not only will students be doing research, but successful applicants will also have the opportunity to shadow physicians. This gives students a chance to not only experience great science but to also experience the doctor-patient relationship side of medicine. We can provide a summer of challenges and exceptional learning experiences.

A wide variety of exciting research projects are available, from studies at the molecular level to patient-oriented clinical research and healthcare outcomes research. Cancer Biology, Cardiovascular Biology, Cell and Developmental Biology, Cell Signaling, Genetics, Immunology, Molecular Biology and Neuroscience are some of the areas available to students for their summer research projects.
