Summer Research Opportunity, Trauma Research Education for Undergraduates

The Trauma Research Education for Undergraduates (REU) program is a joint effort by Syracuse University, SUNY Upstate Medical University, and SUNY Oswego designed to improve access to research experiences for groups typically underrepresented in research. The program is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The entire program spans one year and is designed as follows:
• First, students will attend an intensive four-week summer program (June 1-26, 2015) that will involve coursework, mentored student-faculty interaction, and the development of a research project. A $3,000 stipend does accompany this summer session; room and board at Syracuse University is included at no cost to the student (but is optional).
• Second, students are expected to conduct their research under the continued mentorship of REU faculty during the following Fall semester.
• Finally, students (with their mentors) are expected to present research findings in the following Spring at a national or international conference.
For undergraduates interested in pursuing a graduate education, it is sometimes difficult to find meaningful research experiences and mentoring. This program is designed to provide research training to both increase your skills in conducting trauma research but also increase your ability to gain admission to competitive graduate programs.

Admission requirements
1. Veteran Status (U.S. Armed Forces) is preferred but not required – a limited number of spaces will be available for non-veterans interested in this program.

• Be mentored by our faculty and conduct research on a trauma-related topic.
• Present your findings at a national or international conference, and perhaps publish these findings.
