The Rockefeller University’s Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) is designed to provide qualified, highly motivated college students majoring in the life or physical sciences, an opportunity to experience laboratory research. It is an excellent opportunity for undergraduate sophomores and juniors who are interested in pursuing a career in biomedically related sciences.
The purpose of summer research scholarships is to give students hands-on experience in the field of medical sciences by working with cutting edge technology and learning from scientists. SURF students work with leading scientists in a broad range of areas including biochemistry; structural biology and chemistry; molecular, cell and developmental biology; immunology; virology and microbiology; neuroscience; physics; and mathematical biology.
In order to fully experience the world of scientific research, SURF students are required to present and discuss scientific publications at weekly Journal Club meetings. This exposure allows participants to familiarize themselves with speaking to a scientific audience. SURF students also attend a special lecture series where Rockefeller faculty discuss their research and the evolution of their scientific interests. At the end of the program, SURF students will present their research results to fellow students and mentors at a poster session.
