M-SURE: Michigan Summer Undergraduate Research Experience- Diabetes & Metabolic Diseases
The Department of Molecular & Integrative Physiology and the Caswell Diabetes Institute at the University of Michigan are pleased to support undergraduate students for a 12-week program of summer research related to diabetes and metabolic diseases. Students currently enrolled at a degree-granting university or college are eligible to apply, with preference given to those undergraduates interested in a career in diabetes-related research.
Each student will be matched, based on their interests and background, to a basic or clinical laboratory involved in nationally recognized research related to diabetes and diabetes-related complications such as insulin signaling and insulin resistance, adipocyte biology, nonalcoholic
fatty liver disease, and neuronal control of food intake and energy expenditure.
There will be a research forum at the end of the summer in which fellows will present their work, as well as opportunities throughout the summer, including an undergraduate lecture series and research seminars. The M-SURE programs pays a stipend of $7200.
Further details and application materials are available from the fellowship website:
The deadline for applications is January 22, 2024.
