"In physiology, as in all other sciences, no discovery is useless, no curiosity misplaced or too ambitious, and we may be certain that every advance achieved in the quest of pure knowledge will sooner or later play its part in the service of man." — Ernest Henry Starling
The Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowship program funds 24 full-time
undergraduate students with little or no laboratory research experience
to work for 10 weeks during the summer in the laboratory of an
established APS investigator. Each student has his/her own research
question to work on during the summer. The intent of this program is to
excite and encourage students to pursue a career as a basic research
In addition, Fellows receive a travel grant to allow them to attend
and present their research data at the following year's APS annual
meeting (Experimental Biology), which is a broad-based scientific
meeting of five to seven diverse biological scientific societies that
are members of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental
Biology (FASEB). There are many opportunities for the students to mingle
with other undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers
at the meeting, in addition to all the scientific presentations and
posters they can attend.
The Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowship program was established
in 2000 as an initiative of the Career Opportunities in Physiology
Committee and APS Council and is totally supported by the APS.
