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, 2017
May 30, 2016 - August 5, 2017 (10 weeks)
(Students should arrive in Buffalo on Tuesday May 30th. Program activities begin Wednesday May 31st. The official end date of the program is Friday, August 4th. Students can move out of housing the evening of August 4th or Saturday August 5th.)
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
