Southwestern Medical Center (SURF) Program

UT Southwestern Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences is sponsoring the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program.  The goal of SURF is to give students an intensive, 10-week research experience in a world class research environment.   Students immerse themselves in the laboratory and work on individual research projects with UT Southwestern Graduate School faculty.  We have increased the number of fellowships for SURF to 85.  For more information and to apply online, please go to

UT Southwestern is also sponsoring the Quantitative and Physical Science Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (QP-SURF) Program.   This program, initially funded by a NIGMS training grant and now funded internally, will accept 10 students who are earning their undergraduate degrees in the field of biomedical engineering, mathematics, computer science, physics, or chemistry.   The goal of QP-SURF is to give students an intensive, research experience and demonstrate to students in the physical and quantitative sciences how their knowledge and skill sets are applied in a biomedical research setting.  QP-SURF students would carry out their 10-week research project in a biomedical engineering, biophysics, computational biology, or quantitative/analytical chemistry laboratory.  For more information, and to apply online, please go to  

Both summer program will run from June 2nd through August 8th, 2014.   Participants will be selected based on their letters of reference, course work, and experience.   The stipend for the 10-week program is $4,000.   If a fellow requires housing, the costs will be covered by the program:  however, fellows are responsible for paing their own travel expenses.   Application deadline is February 9, 2014.    Any problems or questions, please email
