The Undergraduate Research Excellence Fellowships program funds 6
full-time undergraduate students with significant prior laboratory

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 (EB). EB is a broad-based scientific
meeting of 5-7 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, there are hundreds of scientific presentations and
posters they can attend.
The Undergraduate Research Excellence Fellowship program was
established in 2012 as an initiative of the Career Opportunities in
Physiology Committee and APS Council and is supported in full by the
The annual EB meeting is a multi-society interdisciplinary, biomedical, and scientific meeting that features plenary and award lectures, symposia, oral and poster sessions, a placement center, and an exhibit of scientific equipment, supplies, and publications.
