Student Research Programs

UC Irvine, UC Irvine Medical Center and the UC Irvine School of Medicine jointly encourage and support student participation in basic science laboratories and clinical research projects. Programs include the School of Biological Sciences BIO199 undergraduate research program and Student Research Intern Program (SRIP).

The BIO199 program enables UC Irvine undergraduate students to pursue independent research for school credit by conducting experimental laboratory, field or clinical research as an apprentice scientist.
