The 10-week summer residential full-time ASPET SURF program offered at the University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center (UCAHC) will provide opportunities for 5 trainees each summer, starting in 2007. Applicants who express interest in pursuing advanced graduate degrees in pharmacology, toxicology, and pharmaceutical sciences will be selected from a regional and national competitive pool with distinguished academic records that have completed at least two full academic years of university courses as full-time students. Each summer, the program will match a total of 5 rising junior and senior students to active research programs of available faculty mentor teams that include at least one ASPET member as mentor or co-mentor. Students will be appointed as Dalton/Zannoni Fellows and will be enrolled as student members of the American Society of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics.

Our ASPET SURF program offers an intellectually and scientifically rigorous faculty-mentored research training that incorporates contemporary laboratory approaches, technologies, and issues relevant to scientific discovery and applications in pharmacology, toxicology, and pharmaceutical sciences. The SURF program offers structured weekly seminars and lectures in parallel with in-depth laboratory research experiences. A professional opportunities program as well as a social program will round out our ASPET SURF summer program.

Number of SURF students and SURF Stipends

The UC-ASPET SURF Program will select and appoint 5 rising juniors or seniors as Dalton/Zannoni Fellows. Each Fellow will receive a stipend of $4,000 for the full time 10 week research training program. Stipends for the ASPET SURF Program student will be comparable to stipends offered to undergraduate students accepted to other SURF programs at the University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center.


Dormitory rooms are available at student occupancy rates on the main campus of the University of Cincinnati within 0.5 miles of the College of Medicine, and can be quickly reached by the Bearcat Express shuttle service that runs every 5 minutes. SURF students can also arrange your own summer sub-lets near to the campus through a University-approved agency. University food service is optional, and prices vary with the type of food plan selected, but there are also a wide variety of other choices on campus in the new Student Center and “Main Street” outlets. Specific information about University room and board costs will be provided upon acceptance to the program.
