Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program

SURF students learn about chemical analysis

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program is intended for highly motivated undergraduates interested in a research career in the pharmaceutical and environmental sciences. Students are given the opportunity to conduct full-time research in areas related to Pharmacology and Toxicology, Environmental Health Sciences, Pharmaceutics, Medicinal Chemistry, Chemical Biology, and Clinical Pharmacy. The SURF program is open to undergraduate students currently enrolled at a university in the United States.

The 10-week program runs each summer from May through July. Training includes hands-on research conducted in the laboratories or clinical practices of faculty members, round table discussions of research progress, and seminars on research careers and activities of the faculty. Students also participate in career development workshops and field trips. At the end of the fellowship, each student provides a brief oral presentation on his or her summer research project.

The SURF Program at the EOHSI/Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy is financially supported by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (1R25ES020721), the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, the Society of Toxicology, the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and the Dean of the School of Pharmacy.
