CHS Undergraduate Research
Experience Discovery

Undergraduate Research Program

The Undergraduate Research Program in the College of Health Sciences is committed to fostering the curiosity of undergraduate students by offering multiple opportunities, across various topics, for mentored, self-directed work.  Participating in an undergraduate research experience can take many forms, ranging from collecting performance data with human subjects to staining tissue cultures, depending on the student’s area of interest.

Whether you are interested in participating in a single semester of undergraduate research or pursuing our more extensive certificate in CHS undergraduate research, this is the place for you!

Engaging in research will help you learn to apply what you know to questions that interest you, use that experience to select a future career, and take pride in seeing your ideas come to life.

The goals of the College of Health Sciences Undergraduate Research Program are to:

  • Foster independent thinking, curiosity, and creativity,
  • Offer guidance and mentorship to students interested in research (both basic and clinical),
  • Learn teamwork and work to achieve a common goal
  • Provide opportunities for students to present the results of their research to different audiences, and
  • Encourage students to consider careers in the health sciences.
