Summer Programs

Summer Undergraduate Research Program 

 The SURP (Summer Undergraduate Research Program) is a signature program of the CGS. Undergraduate students (usually rising juniors and seniors) from all over the country come to MUSC for a 10-week, research intensive experience. A customized didactic program (3 h/wk) introduces students to foundational and cutting-edge concepts in biomedical science and either neuroscience, cancer biology or cardiovascular biology. The keystone of the program, however, is an immersive research experience in an MUSC laboratory. A number of social events foster a sense of community; students present their research in a celebratory symposium at the end of the program. SURP participants can receive up to 15 credits at their home institution.
