About the Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP)

The SURP is an intensive, 9-week internship designed to provide research experience and mentorship for rising-senior undergraduate students who are interested in biomedical research.  Under the guidance of a faculty mentor, students will:

  • Complete an independent research project;
  • Attend weekly research seminars;
  • Participate in professional development workshops designed to facilitate the preparation of competitive applications for graduate/medical school; and
  • Present their findings at a competitive poster session.

The program will run from Monday, June 13Friday, August 12, 2022. An online application for the 2022 SURP is now available on the SURP website.


The application deadline is midnight Pacific Standard Time (PST) on Friday, January 7, 2022. Letters of recommendation for up to two references are due by midnight Pacific Standard Time (PST) on Friday, January 14, 2022


While we are planning to hold an on-site experience in 2022, we are monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and assessing the safest way for students and staff to conduct the program next summer.

Other Biomedical Research Internships

I also wanted to share with you a resource that my colleagues and I developed, which is a catalog of biomedical research internships offered nationwide for high school, undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, graduate, and first-year medical students. Feel free to share this resource with faculty and students at the University of Colorado Boulder.
