The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) is designed to provide a stimulating hands-on research experience for undergraduate students considering graduate education in the biomedical sciences. The program is conducted at the Rowan University Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences in Stratford, New Jersey.
Each student will have the opportunity to learn the basic skills necessary to contribute to the research effort while working with and under the guidance of a selected member of the graduate faculty. The program runs for a ten-week period from May 31 to August 5, 2016. Research opportunities for students are available in many areas of biomedical research including developmental biology, inflammatory mediators, aging, gene expression, stem cells, and cancer biology. Techniques a student might learn include: cell-culturing, electrophoresis, chromatography, immunoassays, animal surgery, immunochemistry, fluorescence imaging and protein and nucleic acid molecular biology. Students will attend various scientific seminars. Finally, all students will present their results at the close of the program.
The program is open to undergraduate students who are considering a research career in the biomedical sciences. Selection of students will be based on the completed application, transcript, and two letters of recommendation. Deadline for receipt of materials is February 1, 2016. The S.U.R.E Program is open only to citizens or permanent residents of the U.S.A.
All students will receive a stipend of $3,500.00. Students must pay for their own housing and travel expenses to and from Stratford. There is no on-campus housing.
