Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF)

The ASPET-sponsored SURF program is for undergraduate students interested in biomedical research. SURF fellows work on their own research project in the lab of a faculty mentor (see website for available labs). Fellows attend relevant laboratory safety training and participate in lab meetings. SURF fellows receive guidance from their faculty mentor, graduate students, postdocs, and the SURF leadership. SURF fellows attend professional development seminars, visit Hospira R&D campus to learn about industrial pharmaceutical careers, tour the UIC research facilities, and participate in workshops on advanced scientific techniques. At the end of the summer, fellows present their research at the annual Mini Symposium.
