The 2020 Summer Fellowship Programs at the Department of Molecular & Integrative Physiology are cancelled due to the developments of the COVID-19 pandemics. The health and safety of the summer fellows is our top priority.
We want to thank you very much for having applied to our programs. We will open applications to our 2021 Summer Fellowship Programs towards the end of the year. Please come back to this website for more information.
The Summer Undergraduate Research in Physiology (SURP) program offers outstanding underrepresented undergraduates the opportunity to conduct intensive research across a variety of disciplines. The goal is to prepare students for advanced studies in one of the Ph.D. programs at the University of Michigan.
The SURP program allows undergraduates the opportunity to work on graduate level research projects with faculty. Students work with faculty mentors either on an individual basis or as part of a research team. In addition, all participants engage in a series of academic, professional, and personal development seminars. Participants present their research at a concluding summer research symposium.
SURP participants are expected to participate full-time for 12-weeks from May 26 through August 14, 2020. Participants may not enroll for classes, concurrent summer programs, or hold other employment during the period of the program.
This program is generously supported by the funds from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) (Grant Number #R25HL108842).
