About Us

The Summer Research Training Programs (SRTP) are paid, 8-week research internships on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, with each track focusing on a different scientific pathway. These programs are aimed at creating opportunities for undergraduate students from backgrounds that have been historically underrepresented in science. The 8-week internship will culminate in both oral and poster presentations as part of a campus-wide summer research symposium. Participation in the program provides students with hands-on experience in a laboratory environment, training to succeed in scientific careers , and a network of faculty and graduate students to provide longitudinal mentorship.
