Description: 

During the ten-week residential summer program, research fellows conduct full-time research, mentored by their Faculty Mentor or Principal Investigator and teams of postdocs, research technicians, graduate students, and other undergraduates. Our summer researchers are registered for a zero-credit residency and may receive a housing award for residence on the Emory campus and/or stipend to support their full-time attention to research training, professional development.

The Natural and Biomedical Sciences Program, is built on the tradition and history of the SURE program, which has a 26-year record of training undergraduates in science research. The Sciences program offers the opportunity to develop the scientific skills most important to success in a professional career - designing experiments, problem-solving, interpreting results, communicating one’s science to various audiences, navigating difficult ethical situations. In addition, it is an opportunity to discuss science and start building your professional network with world-renowned scientists and with your best and brightest peers from Emory and other institutions.

The capstone of the Sciences Summer Program is the Poster Symposium at the end of the summer. Research Fellows formally present their work in a symposium well attended by the community at large, as well as faculty of Emory University (Graduate Division of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, School of Medicine, School of Public Health), Georgia Institute of Technology, and other regional universities, who are looking for up-and-coming young researchers.
