Undergraduate Summer Research Opportunities at UAMS

UAMS Summer Undergraduate Research Program to Increase Diversity in Research

The UAMS Graduate School and Center for Diversity Affairs will offer a new NHLBI funded summer undergraduate research program beginning June 2012. This program was designed to provide students with experiences in cardiovascular, pulmonary, or hematologic research. Students will be provided with research, mentoring and networking experiences; real-life surgical observations; and simulated cardiovascular demonstrations to increase interest in research careers. Student leadership skills will also be developed as part of the summer program.

Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Summer Research Fellowships for Undergraduates

The goal of our program is to expose undergraduates to an engaging research environment and in doing so consider the possibilities of graduate level research. Students obtain hands on experience working on a research project under the guidance of one of our faculty. The diverse areas of interest for our faculty provide a wide range of potential projects accessible to students. Our program offers an excellent opportunity to meet UAMS faculty on a personal level and to engage in on-going research projects.
