CLIMB UP (Undergraduate Program) for Summer Research gives students an opportunity to conduct research in the biomedical and health sciences and explore graduate career opportunities. At the end of the program, students will present posters and/or oral presentations in a professional symposium.
DEADLINE: February 1, 2018
May 29 - August 4, 2018 (10 weeks)
(Students should arrive in Buffalo on Tuesday, May 29th. Program activities begin Wednesday, May 30th. The official end date of the program is Friday, August 3rd. Students can move out of housing the evening of Friday, August 3rd or Saturday, August 4th.)
The CLIMB-UP Summer Research Program will match you with a participating faculty mentor whose interests are complementary to your own. You will work on your own research project and get hands-on experience during the 10-week program. The summer will culminate with you and your peers presenting your work at the Summer Research Day with students from other UB summer research programs.
During the first week in the program, students attend the Introduction to Laboratory Skills course, taught by Dr. David Shubert and Ms. Deborah Timineri, Instructional Support Associate. Students learn essential skills and important laboratory safety protocols to conduct their summer research.
In addition to your faculty mentor, you will receive mentoring and guidance from graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and the CLIMB leadership to ensure you have a productive and fulfilling summer. They will work with you on your research project, help you prepare your presentations, and provide insight on careers in science. Being part of CLIMB-UP could be the start of lifelong friendships and mentor relationships.
Funds are available to provide a living stipend (room and board plus incidentals, paid biweekly) for a limited number of students. Housing is provided for students who live outside Buffalo.
Funding is provided by:
*US citizens or permanent residents only; unfortunately we are unable to offer stipends to students who do not fit these criteria.
We know it's important to take full advantage of the beautiful Buffalo summers. Events include a trip to Niagara Falls, the annual program picnic, a buffalo chicken wing social gathering, and more.
