WHAT IS THE UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH COMMITTEE?

We are a subcommittee of the Professional Development Committee, serving undergraduate researchers and others committeed to undergraduate research. Our goals are:

  • For undergraduates: Provide recognition and support by the Society for their current research efforts, provide an opportunity to connect with other undergraduates at SfRBM meetings, and provide support for their future careers through networking and a means to search for graduate programs or positions in industry, etc.
  • For mentors: Provide an environment for networking, mentoring, developing collaborations, and sharing information on best targets for undergraduate research funding.
  • For young investigators: Provide a supportive and informative environment for young investigators who are interested in a career conducting research at a liberal arts college or similar environment where a significant percentage of the research is conducted by undergraduates.
  • For members of the Society: Offer a platform for recruiting prospective graduate students or scientists for entry level jobs.
