Virtual showcase for BSURP 2021

Welcome! The Department of Biology, using funds from various sources including the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education (VPUE), offers paid research internships to current Stanford undergraduates who want to spend the summer participating in ongoing faculty research projects to learn biological research methods. Students work closely with a mentor on a research project to learn more about the process of science. This year, 50 students engaged in remote or on-campus projects during the Spring or Summer quarter. Students crafted a poster and recorded a presentation to share their work. Browse the projects by topic below or search for a specific student or topic on the all projects page. We hope you enjoy viewing their work!

You are also invited to join us (virtually) at the BSURP Symposium on Thursday, August 26, 2021 from 2-4pm PT to hear students present their posters and answer questions. Register here
