Cancer Research Experience for Undergraduates (CREU)
Through the University of Colorado Cancer Center's Cancer Research Summer Fellowship Program, every summer 35 to 40 college undergraduate students and a few advanced high school students are given the opportunity to spend ten weeks in our laboratories at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, University of Colorado Boulder and other Denver-area health care institutions. The goal of the program is to engage scientific curiosity in the next generation of scientists, challenging qualified college undergraduates and exceptionally gifted high school students to consider a cancer-related career in the future.
Building Research Achievement in Neuroscience (BRAiN)
The University of Colorado Denver, in collaboration with New Mexico State University, is proud to present an exciting opportunity for junior and senior undergraduate students to perform cutting-edge neuroscience research in the state-of-the-art research facilities at the Anschutz Medical Campus Research facilities in Aurora, Colorado and at their home campus in Denver, Colorado or Las Cruces, New Mexico. As a recipient of the National Institutes of Health’s multimillion-dollar initiative Blueprint ENDURE (Enhancing Neuroscience Diversity through Undergraduate Research Education Experiences), the BRAiN program aims to raise interest and opportunities in neuroscience research for individuals who are typically underrepresented in the field. Specifically, BRAiN is designed for the budding undergraduate scientist who is from an underrepresented population and who is interested in pursuing a graduate degree (PhD) in neuroscience.
Graduate Experiences for Multicultural Students (GEMS)
GEMS introduce undergraduate students from diverse and traditionally under-represented groups to the biomedical research career opportunities offered at the graduate level of a major health sciences center. Students enroll in a ten-week summer research internship course. The course is conducted by distinguished science faculty and consists of lectures, demonstrations, and laboratory research assignments. Participating in basic science programs at the Anschutz Medical Campus includes biochemistry and molecular genetics, immunology, microbiology, molecular biology, neuroscience, pharmacology, and physiology.
Psychiatry Undergraduate Research Program and Learning Experience (PURPLE)
The Summer Research Program for Undergraduate Students at the PMHI is designed to introduce young people to child and adolescent psychiatry by having them participate in research activities.
Summer Undergraduate Minority Mentoring in Translational Science (SUMMiT)
SUMMiT is a collaborative series designed to quantitatively and qualitatively enhance summer undergraduate research programs by focusing on the unique needs of traditionally underrepresented students in science and research fields. Selected trainees will participate in targeted career development sessions held throughout the summer.
Summer Research Enhancement Program (SREP)
A unique training program for students interested in public health prevention research in Native communities.
Leadership Education for Aspiring Doctors (LEAD)
The Leadership Education for Aspiring Doctors (LEAD) program is an opportunity for diverse undergraduate (pre-medical) students to gain the tools and skills necessary to lead the innovative transformation of the American healthcare system. We are seeking to develop diverse future physician leaders who can transform the quality, safety, efficiency, and patient experience in healthcare.
Summer Child Health Research Internship
The Department of Pediatrics offers summer research opportunities for rising high school seniors, college students, and first-year medical students. Students will work in the lab with members of the Department of Pediatrics faculty at Children's Hospital Colorado/University of Colorado on the Anschutz Medical Campus.
Pre-Med Emergency & Wilderness Medicine Program
Interested in a hands-on pre-med course? For undergraduate and graduate college students (and recent grads) the University of Colorado School of Medicine is offering an exciting new hands-on opportunity to explore the fields of emergency and wilderness medicine.
