Undergraduate Research Programs

Undergraduate Research Experience in Biomedical Sciences (UREBS)

This program aims to promote future careers in biomedical research by providing UNM undergraduates an opportunity to experience research in labs across the University while earning academic credit. For each hour of credit in BIOM 410, the student is expected to spend at least 3 hours per week in the laboratory. This program can also be used for students to qualify for Departmental Honors at graduation.

Undergraduate Pipeline Network (UPN)

This program works to cultivate both UNM and other undergraduate students' interest in research while helping them attain skills needed to apply for and succeed in post-baccalaureate education. The program provides the opportunity for students to choose from two types of research – Biomedical Science or  Community-Based/Health Disparities. The program period covers 10 weeks and students participate in the program a minimum of 40 hours per week while earning one academic credit in BIOM 410.
