SURF Program
The Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program is funded in part by the American Society of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET). The goal of this national research program is to give undergraduate students who might be interested in graduate school and a career in biomedical research the opportunity to experience what it is like to work in a research lab and perform biomedical research in pharmacology or toxicology. Students spend 10 weeks working in the lab and earn $3,000. If you have any questions, contact Dr. Mayeux.
The SURF 2014 application can be downloaded here. The program will begin Monday June 2 and end Friday August 8. Note that these are paid positions so international students with a student visa are not eligible. Contact Dr. Philip R. Mayeux by e-mail or at (501) 686-8895 to request a hard copy of the application if have problems downloading the application file. The completed application should be emailed to Dr. Mayeux.

The completed application and letters of recommendation must be received by Dr. Mayeux not later than Tuesday March 4, 2014. Students will be notified of their status via email by March 25, 2014.
