Undergraduate Pipeline Network (UPN) summer research experience at the University of New Mexico’s Health Sciences Center. The application deadline is February 20, 2015.
The UPN program seeks to cultivate student interest in research while helping them develop the skills needed to apply for and succeed in post-baccalaureate education. During the ten-week summer program, UPN students conduct full-time research, mentored by their lab Principal Investigator (PI) and team of postdocs, technicians, graduate students, and other undergraduates. In addition, students participate in weekly seminars and team-building activities focused on professional development and networking. This year our program will run from May 28 through August 6, 2015, and requires a full time commitment from our students, who work on average of 40 hours per week. UPN students receive an academic fellowship (stipend) of up to $5000 for the summer.
The goals of our program are to provide the opportunity for undergraduate students to:
- Conduct biomedical or community-based/health disparities research for 10 weeks at a nationally recognized Health Sciences Center
- Build credentials for graduate, medical or other professional training.
- Improve writing, presentation and interview skills
- Assist in the design, collection, processing & analysis of scientific data.
- Learn cutting-edge research techniques and use state-of-the-art technology.
- Present their research to the New Mexico scientific community.
- Receive a summer stipend of up to $5000.
- “Experience so many interesting things” while having “a wonderful time” and a “great summer,” according to past participants.
With the mission of preparing and recruiting the next generation of research scientists and clinicians, we hope to expose students to the breadth of opportunities that exist within the fields of biomedical and community-based research. Please encourage students who are interested in research to apply for our program.
