UCSF Summer Research Programs Students selected for summer research at UCSF will participate in seminars, presentations, and social events throughout the summer, creating a cohesive community of student researchers. The organization and funding for the UCSF summer research programs comes from: Summer Research Training Program (SRTP):
The SRTP provides undergraduate and master's students with the opportunity to conduct research in the biological and biomedical sciences and make them more competitive candidates for Ph.D. Programs. Students are supported in this program by funds from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, NSF's Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate, Genentech, the University of California Office of the President, and the UCSF Graduate Division. Amgen Scholars Program: Supported by a grant from the Amgen Foundation, the Amgen Scholars Program provides summer research opportunities at UCSF for 25 undergraduate students in science and biotechnology. In addition to the summer research experience, participants in the Amgen Scholars Program will join other Amgen Scholars from across the country at a Symposium, at which they will share their summer research findings. Molecular Biosciences Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU): The Molecular Biosciences REU program at UCSF combines and outstanding laboratory research experience with activities designed to foster scientific communication and facilitate a transition to graduate school. Funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), this program provides 12 students with research opportunities.
