I am glad to see you are interested in research. If you are a first year medical student (MS1) you are in the right place. The Summer Research Programs (SRP) is here to help you with organizing your summer to conduct research either at UTMB or outside of UTMB. In this webpage, you will find current research opportunities and the steps to follow to enroll in a Summer Research Program.
All research for academic credit between Year 1 and Year 2 must be coordinated and approved through the 8-week Summer Research Program (SRP) or the 4-week Summer Research Elective (SRE). The 4-week option is reserved for students who cannot participate in the 8-week program because of special circumstances. Students must obtain special approval to participate in the 4-week option. Research students will be required to attend an orientation program, lab meetings, SRP meetings and present their work at a poster session as part of the preceptorship requirement. SRE students will be required to attend laboratory meetings, present an oral presentation and write a written report.
For further information regarding the SRP, please contact:
Further information may also be found in Blackboard under Summer Research Programs 2018.
Important Training Information: All research students will attend the general lab knowledge training on Orientation Day, May 7. All students whose research project involves lab time, will be required to attend several training sessions during the first week of the programs. Times will be assigned. Any research that involves animals requires additional training. We recommend that you contact us as soon as possible or Sharon Walters (firstname.lastname@example.org) to accommodate your training needs.
