UTHealth Summer Research Programs

These undergraduate research programs are run by faculty members affiliated with the University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Houston, a unique collaboration between MD Anderson and UTHealth. Participation in one of these programs would provide hands-on research experience in a biomedical field, and an introductory example of a graduate (Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D.) research career. The programs differ by institutional locale and funding source but all provide rich scientific environments and opportunities for career enhancement.
