Research Opportunities

Bioscience Undergraduate Research Training Program

This state-funded two-year program strengthens undergraduate education in the life sciences by increasing the participation of students in biological research. The Bioscience Program awards scholarships to outstanding students, provides them opportunities to do research under the mentorship of University faculty, and to become acquainted with students with similar interests through Bioscience Program courses. These experiences have proven to be of invaluable benefit for students as they pursue medical or graduate school.

Summer Undergraduate Research Program

The Bioscience Program and the Graduate Programs in Molecular Biology and Biological Chemistry jointly conduct a Summer Undergraduate Research Program. Students spend ten weeks working on individual research projects in the laboratories of faculty mentors.

High School Summer Research Program

The Bioscience High School Summer Research Program offers students two weeks of training in basic laboratory procedures followed by six weeks of assisting faculty with research. A $500 stipend is provided and some students subsequently may obtain employment in a research lab. Students must have three years of math and three science courses (including Biology and Chemistry) completed by the end of their junior year. Applicants must be residents of Utah.
