Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP)
The Sackler Institute in coordination with the M.D./Ph.D. Program and the Office of Diversity Affairs offers a Summer Undergraduate Research Program for qualified sophomores and juniors who are interested in pursuing M.D., M.D./Ph.D. or Ph.D. degrees and a career in research. Students may work with faculty in the disciplines of Biochemistry, Biomedical Imaging, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Developmental Genetics, Immunology, Microbiology, Molecular Oncology, Molecular Pharmacology, Neuroscience and Physiology, Parasitology, Structural Biology, Forensic Pathology, Computational Biology and Virology. Students are matched with an investigator of their choice or placed in a laboratory working in an area of their interest. Undergraduate researchers are given their own project which they present at a poster session at the end of the summer. They are expected to perform on a graduate student level.

Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship Program (IGERT)
The Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program has been developed to meet the challenges of educating U.S. Ph.D. scientists and engineers with interdisciplinary backgrounds, deep knowledge in chosen disciplines, and technical, professional, and personal skills. The program is intended to establish new models for graduate education and training in a fertile environment for collaborative research that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries. It is also intended to facilitate diversity in student participation and preparation, and to contribute to a world-class, broadly inclusive, and globally engaged science and engineering workforce.

Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP)
The purpose of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) is to help ensure the vitality and diversity of the scientific and engineering workforce in the United States. The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students who are pursuing research-based master's and doctoral degrees in fields within NSF's mission. The GRFP provides three years of support for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant achievements in science and engineering research.

Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants in the Directorate for Biological Sciences (DDIG)
The National Science Foundation awards Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants in selected areas of the biological sciences. These grants provide partial support of doctoral dissertation research to improve the overall quality of research. Allowed are costs for doctoral candidates to participate in scientific meetings, to conduct research in specialized facilities or field settings, and to expand an existing body of dissertation research
