The Summer Student Research Program of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine in the UBC Faculty of Medicine has been established for the purpose of providing undergraduate and medical students with either basic or clinical research experiences, or clinical experiences in laboratory medicine, under the supervision and mentorship of our Department’s Faculty.

The Summer Student Research Program Chair is appointed by the Department Head for a term of 4 years with an opportunity to be reappointed.  The current Chair is Dr. Ramesh Saeedi, who was appointed in January 2019.

The Chair and other faculty members, as required, will review applications and select students based on their academic record for the past two years and their proposed research project.

This year we are pleased to offer a total of 7 awards.  Each Student will receive an award of $3200 over 2 consecutive months of the Summer Term (May – August).

Deadline for applications is Friday, March 13th, 2020 at 4:00pm.

Some Faculty Members have provided their names for a Permission-to-Contact list posted above.  If you are interested in working under their supervision this summer, you are encouraged to contact them by email or phone to inquire about a position that they may have available. Should you be selected by the faculty as an appropriate co-applicant, you will fill out the application form together.
