The Microbiology, Immunology & Molecular Genetics Department is proud of its strong research tradition.

** We are still accepting applications for our summer research fellowship as of March 17, 2020. If there are any changes, they will be posted on this page and anyone who has already applied will be notified by email. Thank you!

2020 marks the 35th Annual Summer Research Training Fellowship offered by the Department of Microbiology, Immunology & Molecular Genetics at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. This fellowship program is ideal for students who are exploring STEM career options. By being directly involved in experimentation, students get the chance to see how science concepts that they are learning in the classroom are applied to modern research questions. In the past, some of the fellowship recipients have even continued their research projects either as an independent study for high school credit, as a matriculated UK student in the fall semester, or as summer employment while home from attending an out-of-town college. The deadline for receiving applications is Wednesday, April 1st, 2020, 11:59 P.M.
