Undergraduates

Sanford Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) and National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (NSF REU) Site in Cell and Molecular Biology 
The SPUR and NSF REU Site provide an opportunity for undergraduates to participate in laboratory research and career preparation workshops. This 10-week summer program enables students to obtain research experience and prepare them for a scientific career. Research opportunities are also available during the academic year. 

Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE)
The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) offers undergraduate students the opportunity to obtain hands-on social/behavioral research experience in American Indian community-based projects in Mission, Pine Ridge, Rapid City or Sioux Falls, SD. Students will gain knowledge about research design and implementation, data collection and American Indian health disparities. Students who are underrepresented in science are encouraged to apply (underrepresented includes ethnic minority students, first generation college students, students from lower income or rural backgrounds).

Research Shadowing Program
The Research Shadowing Program is an observational program allowing college students and high school students sixteen years of age or older to shadow a scientist during part of their routine day in one of our research labs. After shadowing within our research environment, students should develop an appreciation for some of the qualities required for a career as a research scientist.
