With our emphasis on undergraduate research, we offer many ways for UT students to do research throughout the year and in the summers. Interested UT undergraduates should contact BCMB faculty members early in the spring semester to begin making arrangements for summer research. Some faculty can fund a summer research project from grant funds. The Office of Research and Engagement has established an Office of Undergraduate Research that highlights research activities across campus. This program includes an Undergraduate Internship Program for interested students to apply for summer stipends to do research on the UT campus.
We also sponsor programs that provide opportunities for students from other campuses to come experience research in the BCMB department and elsewhere at UT. These opportunities include:
- Summer Research Internships UTK
- The National Institute of Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) provides an program for undergraduates and veterinary students to experience research in mathematical biology.
- List of Biology REU programs funded by the NSFUndergraduate Summer Internship
