SURE (Summer Undergraduate Research Experience): Natural and Biomedical Sciences Program at Emory College

The SURE (Summer Undergraduate Research Experience): Natural and Biomedical Sciences Program supports Emory College undergraduates who wish to explore, experience, and conduct full-time independent and mentored research for the summer.
During the ten-week residential summer program, research fellows conduct full-time research, mentored by their Faculty Mentor or Principal Investigator and teams of postdocs, research technicians, graduate students, and other undergraduates.  Our summer researchers receive a housing award for residence on the Emory campus and a stipend to support their full-time attention to research training and professional development. SURE provides an opportunity to discuss science and start building your professional network with world-renowned scientists and with your best and brightest peers from Emory and other institutions.
