The Undergraduate Biology Research Program (UBRP) is an educational program designed to teach students science by involving them in biologically related research. Students are paid for their time in the lab where they develop an understanding of the scientific method and receive a realistic view of biological research. They also acquire the tools necessary to be successful in post-graduate studies in biology should they choose careers related to biology or biomedical research. UBRP demonstrates how the resources of a major research university can be brought to bear on undergraduate education.
Under the UBRP umbrella there are many different programs for which students can apply to conduct paid full-time research over the summer. Learn more about all the programs and their respective application processes here.
