A UTMB program lets undergraduate students work on a summer research project under the guidance of a selected faculty member. “Our Summer Undergraduate Research Program is run by the GSBS and is a program in which undergraduate students who are in college can come to UTMB to work on a summer research project under the guidance of a selected faculty member and mentor,” said Dr. Bill Ameredes, associate professor of medicine. “Typically, we enlist some of the GSBS graduate students to assist with the mentoring.”
