Research Opportunities

Student doing research

Physiology faculty members serve as mentors and research supervisors for several undergraduate students each semester. Undergraduate Physiology and Medical Sciences majors also participate in research projects with faculty in other departments across campus. Physiology and Medical Sciences majors who participate in research projects with faculty sponsors have the opportunity to present their research at departmental poster sessions held each October and April.

Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate Research sponsored by the College of Science provides information on how to get involved with research at the UA, as well as search engines for research programs and faculty at the UA conducting research.
