LSSURP 2019 Cohort at Lake Itasca Orientation Weekend

The Life Sciences Summer Undergraduate Research Programs (LSSURP) were established in 1989 to expose qualified students in the life sciences to the University of Minnesota. The LSSURP is a group of multidisciplinary programs that attract students from more than 200 undergraduate institutions, all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

The objectives of the programs are to help increase the:

  • Number of undergraduates who earn graduate or professional degrees in life sciences disciplines
  • Diversity of professionals working in life sciences fields in business, industry, government, and academia
  • Diversity of the graduate student population in life sciences disciplines at the University of Minnesota

To accomplish these objectives, highly capable undergraduate students are selected to participate in a ten-week intensive research project under the direction of a University of Minnesota faculty mentor.
