Undergraduate Research Program (URP) - Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

CSHL’s Undergraduate Research Program (URP) provides one of the few places where young people are instructed in the techniques of modern biology while becoming integrated members of a vibrant scientific community. Each year, approximately 25 students from around the world are accepted to the fully subsidized, 10-week summer program to work with senior Laboratory staff members on independent research projects in:
  • Cancer Biology
  • Neuroscience
  • Plant Biology
  • Cellular and Molecular Biology
  • Genetics
  • Bioinformatics and Genomics
The URP program and its NSF REU component are administered by the Watson School of Biological Sciences and is designed to give students an opportunity to conduct first-rate research. Participants learn about scientific reasoning, laboratory methods, theoretical principles, and scientific communication. The specific objectives of the program as it relates to undergraduate students are:
  • Provide college undergraduates an opportunity to conduct original research
  • Enable interactions with scientists from graduate students to Principle Investigators
  • Introduce them to the physical and intellectual tools necessary for biological research
  • Inform them about the major questions now under investigation in the biomedical and life sciences
  • Promote interactions among students of diverse backgrounds

In addition to their research, URP students attend a series of seminars and special events designed specifically for them. At the URP Symposium, held at the end of each summer, students present a summary of their research to the entire CSHL community. Each participant also writes a scientific abstract, and a final report to describe his or her project.

Dates and Deadlines
The deadline for receipt of completed applications, including letters of recommendation, is January 15, 2014.  Applications will not be reviewed if they are received after the deadline.  Notification of application status will be sent to students by the end of March 2014.

The 2014 URP Program will be held from Tuesday, June 3 - Saturday, August 9, 2014.

A stipend of $5000 will be paid for the 10-week period. All room & board expenses will be covered.
