This program provides undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct research in preclinical and clinical laboratories at the Maryland Psychiatric Research Center and other laboratories of the Department of Psychiatry, University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore.

In addition to a mentored hands-on research experience, students will participate in a didactic lecture series, research and ethics discussions with faculty, literature journal club, a career development seminar, and a Scholars' Research Day at the end of the summer. Throughout the summer, students will work and interact with various faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and research assistants while gaining experience in preclinical and/or clinical research.
