American Physiology Society undergraduate researcher programs

The American Physiology Society has funding from a variety of sources to support five different undergraduate researcher programs for summer 2013. These programs are open to all; however, some programs are designed to broaden participation in STEM careers and are open to students from underrepresented backgrounds and/or for specific areas of physiological research.   APS Fellows complete not only 10 weeks of a summer research experience and professional development activities on their campus, but also interactive, online activities with students nationwide, exploring career options, responsible conduct of research, structuring research studies, developing abstracts, and presenting research posters. Students will also present at APS conferences where they are active participants in a professional community. Applications are due February 1, 2013.
