Summer Undergraduate Research Programs

The University of Iowa provides undergraduates from diverse collegiate backgrounds the opportunity to have an immersive biomedical research experience during the summer in a cutting-edge, hypothesis-driven laboratory.  Participants, through a hands-on research experience, enhance their analytical and technical research skill s while working with and receiving mentoring from a University of Iowa faculty member.  

Check out the outstanding programs available for research training in a diverse and inclusive university environment at a leading academic medical center!

In addition to the time in the laboratory, we highly encourage summer undergraduate research program participants to enrich their summer experience by taking advantage of the career and professional development activities.  Check out the offerings below!
