The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program at UT Southwestern is an intensive, 10 week summer research training experience designed for college students who are preparing for careers in biological research. Fellows gain experience in modern research techniques, and have a chance to plan and execute an experimental strategy to answer a scientific question. The program introduces students to the sorts of projects encountered during postgraduate research training and leads to an understanding of the planning, discipline, and teamwork involved in the pursuit of basic answers to current questions in the biological sciences. Over two hundred and fifty participating faculty offer training in genomics, cancer biology, computational biology, developmental biology, molecular genetics, structural biology, cell biology, chemistry, systems biology, pharmacology, microbiology and infectious diseases, neurosciences, immunology, and mechanisms of disease.
