Summer Undergraduate Opportunities at UAB

Kidney Undergraduate Research Program (KURE)
The KURE participants engage in guided kidney-related research with a mentor and attend a variety of seminars and workshops over the course of the 8 week program. Aside from time in the lab, students will have professional development sessions and the opportunity to shadow some physicians in clinic. The KURE oral symposium, held at the close of the summer session is where students present their summer research. 

Preparation for Graduate & Medical Education (PARAdiGM)
The PARAdiGM program focuses on undergraduates from diverse and underrepresented minority backgrounds, and offers the opportunity to participate in the program for 2 summers. In addition to working in the laboratory of a faculty mentor with an actively funded biomedical research program, PARAdiGM participants will learn about careers in academic medical centers (AMCs) by shadowing clinician-investigators in their clinics, as well as on in-patient rounds. At the end of the first summer in the program, the students will write an abstract and participate in both a local and national poster presentation of their research results. The students will also receive instruction in essay writing, MCAT preparation, and critical career skills. The ultimate goal of the program is to provide undergraduate students with an understanding and appreciation of the biomedical research process so as to encourage them to pursue careers studying patients and their diseases after further postgraduate training in graduate and medical education. Previous research experience is not required in order to apply. The PARAdiGM program is especially useful for students who do not have local access to biomedical research and/or academic physician-scientist role models.

Summer in Biomedical Sciences (SIBS) Undergraduate Research Program
This fellowship is intended to give talented undergraduate students the opportunity to experience the challenges and rewards of intensive, hypothesis-drive laboratory research. This experience should help students make well-informed decisions about future career plans. Previous research experience is not required. The program especially welcomes applications from students who are interested in research as a potential career, including students interested in PhD and MD/PhD programs. Fifteen students are accepted per summer. Applicants to SIBS are expected to have completed at least their 2nd year of undergraduate coursework and have a 3.0 or higher grade point average, especially in science, math, and related areas.

Application deadline: February 15, 2018
