Summer Research Programs
These undergraduate research programs are run by faculty members at institutions that are affiliated with the University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Houston. Participation in one of these programs would provide hands-on research experience in a biomedical field, and an introductory example of a graduate (Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D.) research career. The programs differ by institutional locale and funding source but all provide rich scientific environments and opportunities for career enhancement.
