University of Rochester Undergraduate Placement Program


The University of Rochester Undergraduate Placement Program (UR-UPP) is a new initiative that works to lower barriers to accessing undergraduate research experience here at UR.  UR-UPP offers trainings in basic research skills and required safety/ethics modules desired by laboratories and clinicians in service of a placement program that matches motivated undergraduates with researchers across campuses.  In the past, UR-UPP has focused on neuroscience research; however, we are looking to expand our connection capacity to health and life sciences more broadly.

Quick Links

STUDENTS: Tell us about you and your interest in research by completing the Student Research Interest Inventory. This link will work to start a new form and also to edit work you've submitted, but not completed (so you can leave fields incomplete and come back to them later).

MENTORS: Have a project?  Submit a brief description by completing this form so we can share your work with motivated undergraduates interested in your research!  Interested, but don't have a specific project in mind?  Fill in our brief interest form.

QUESTIONS? Contact Teresa Long, UR-UPP project coordinator, at or 585-276-4522.
