Summer Programs in Undergraduate Research (SPUR)
We are pleased to announce that our Bioscience Summer Undergraduate Research Programs will now be administered by the Office of Undergraduate Research at the University of Utah under the name Summer Programs in Undergraduate Research (SPUR).
Megan Shannahan, Undergraduate Research Advisor
Biology Department Ph.D.
Molecular, Cellular and Evolutionary Biology
The MCEB program focuses on how complex biological systems emerge from molecules, cells and genes – the fundamental units of life. Fields strongly represented within MCEB are molecular and cellular biology, developmental biology, Mendelian and quantitative genetics, evolutionary biology and biological diversity, biochemistry, neurobiology, and microbiology.
Shannon Nielsen, Graduate Program Coordinator
Biomedical Informatics, Ph.D.
The mission of the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Utah is to improve health outcomes through information systems (including health, economic, and satisfaction results for consumers and providers) in both the private and public sectors of the healthcare and public health systems.
Barbara Saffel, Academic Program Manager
Professional Masters of Science and Technology
Understanding biochemical, genetic, and molecular aspects of biotechnology is paramount in guiding the future of the industry. Biotechnology is a rapidly expanding field with opportunities in a wide range of industries including healthcare, pharmaceutical, food, agriculture, and consumer products.
Derek Payne, Program Coordinator
Nutrition and Integrated Physiology
The rigorous program trains research scientists and academic scholars on the fundamentals of translational bioscience, enabling them to take research findings from bench-to-bedside.
Sarah Elizabeth Levitt, Program Coordinator
Nanotechnology Training Program
Nanotechnology Training Program Certificate
The Nano Institute of Utah provides an organization wherein scientists, engineers and clinicians from across the University, the State and elsewhere work together to attain global recognition by conquering interdisciplinary challenges in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The Institute enables Utah researchers from disciplines such as chemistry, physics, biology, engineering, medicine, and pharmacy to create synergistic alliances to drive higher levels of collaborative research, education and commercialization.
Ruby Steele, Program Coordinator
Genome Sciences Program
Genome Sciences Program Certificate
The goal of the Genome Sciences (GS) Program is to train the next generation of investigators to integrate genomics with biological and clinical research. Genome sciences merges functional genomics and translational biology to investigate biological systems at all levels of complexity.
The Certificate Program allows students to gain a broad background in core Informatics issues, as well as more specialized knowledge in sub-domains such as bioinformatics, public health informatics, clinical information systems and medical imaging. Individual programs of study allow for further specialization and development of knowledge in related fields.
University of Utah Med into Grad Program (U2M2G)
University of Utah Molecular Medicine (U2M2) is charged with integrating basic science and health professional predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees throughout the University of Utah School of Medicine. The U2M2 Program is responsible for a network of translational research opportunities to PhD trainees, MD trainees, PhD postdoctoral fellows, and Physicians.
