Summer Program in Undergraduate Research: SPUR
Research opportunities for students in the life sciences
SPUR WILL NOT BE OFFERED IN 2013
The SPUR program is designed to acquaint students with all aspects of scientific research, from formulation of a question to production of a final report. Each participant will be assigned to a faculty member whose research is of interest to that student. While the student's research is expected to contribute to ongoing research in the faculty member's laboratory, the students are encouraged to help in designing a research project. Students will share in their departments' weekly activities such as seminars and journal clubs. All participants will join in several activities that will encourage interaction among all students engaged in summer research. The program will culminate with a one-day poster session where students can share their results with the research community at CWRU. All students are required to participate in the poster session that is scheduled for Friday, July 30, 2010. We ask that you carefully consider the research areas described in the individual program announcements. We will make every effort to match you with faculty members in your area of interest.
