Undergraduate Research

The Office of Undergraduate Research in the College of Health Sciences is committed to fostering the curiosity of undergraduate students, by offering multiple opportunities, across a variety of 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.

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 initiative are to:

(1) Foster independent thinking and creativity,
(2) Offer guidance and mentorship to students interested in research,
(3) Provide a forum for students to present the results of their research, and
(4) Encourage students to consider careers in the health sciences.
