KURE Logo imageThe KURE (Kidney Undergraduate Research Program) participants engage in guided kidney-related research with a mentor and attend a variety of seminars and workshops over the course of the 10 week program. Aside from time in the lab students will have professional development sessions and the opportunity to shadow some of our physicians in clinic. The KURE oral symposium, held at the close of the summer session is where students present their summer research.

Students in 2017 also attended the UAB Undergraduate Expo, a forum for all undergraduate research and service learning that goes on during the summer on the UAB campus that involves lectures and a poster session. The students also were able to attend the Undergraduate Research Symposium held by the NIDDK in Baltimore.
