Our Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) is our summer research experience for undergraduate students interested in pursuing graduate training in the biomedical sciences. Through this summer program, students will:
  • Enhance their technical and analytical scientific research skills
  • Develop a relationship with a research mentor
  • Perform daily research activities
  • Earn a stipend during the course of the program
Successful applicants will be matched with a participating faculty member according to their research interests.  These research mentors are College of Medicine faculty who work in various disciplines, including biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, neuroscience, microbiology, immunology, pharmacology, and physiology. SURF students are expected to work 40 hours per week in their assigned laboratory. Students will meet periodically with their mentors to prepare and review the content of their oral presentations.
The SURF award includes a $3,000 stipend paid directly to the student during the course of the program. Local campus housing will be provided for students not located within the Philadelphia area.
