• Health Research Program Information session

    The next phase of the Health Research Program (HRP) is now open. HRP is a program coordinated by the Office of Undergraduate Research that offers a pathway into undergraduate research for students with interests in health and/or the biomedical sciences. By facilitating connections between UConn Health researchers and UConn undergraduates, the program aims to involve more students in research at UConn Health.


    Here is the key information:

    -        Summer 2021 opportunities are now posted on the HRP website. There are 34 opportunities that range from psychiatry to biological modeling, biomaterials to neuroscience, genetics to public health. The application deadline for these opportunities is 11:59pm on Monday, February 1, 2021.

    -        All of these opportunities are slated to continue into the 2021-22 academic year. Continuation is contingent on satisfactory progress over the course of the summer and both student and faculty mentor interest in continuing the placement.

    -        To be eligible for Summer 2021 HRP opportunities, students must plan to graduate no sooner than May 2022.

    -        Applicants should consider how they plan to travel to and from Farmington this summer and during the academic year. Further information about transportation options is available in the HRP FAQ.
