Research Opportunities for Undergrads and Post-Bac Students

SUIP poster session 2015SUIP

The SUIP provides an intense research experience to students interested in graduate study in the biomedical and biological sciences. Approximately 30 college students from across the US participate each year; most are rising juniors and seniors, but occasionally we admit a rising sophomore. Interns complete ten weeks of full-time laboratory research, attend state-of-the-art research seminars, receive career counseling from program faculty and administrators, and attend The Leadership Alliance National Symposium.

The University of Pennsylvania Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PennPREP) offers a one-to- two-year research experience for students who have completed college and are interested in pursuing a doctoral degree in the biomedical sciences. The program provides a significant research experience and preparation for applying to and succeeding in graduate school.
