The Short-term Research Training Program (SRTP) provides a wealth of research opportunities focusing on basic biomedical, clinical, translational, educational, community-based, public health/epidemiology and outcomes research. The diversity in our students' summer research projects reinforces the concept of laboratory discoveries as they are translated to the clinical setting. Students conducting summer research have an opportunity to present their work at Medical Student Research Day (MSRD) held annually in the fall at UAB. To view previous summer research SRTP participants and publications see the sidebar.
