About the Undergraduate Research Office
The primary purpose of the Undergraduate Research Office is to support all undergraduate students in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences who undertake research, either as a compulsory or an elective component of their degrees. The Undergraduate Research Office aims to be a one-stop shop of services and resources for undergraduate students as they navigate through the research process.
At the Undergraduate Research Office, our goal is to equip students to become good researchers. From developing a protocol to applying for ethics and securing funding for your research, you will find all the information and support you need at the Undergraduate Research Office. And because we want you to become famous, we also provide resources to encourage you to present and publish the findings of your research.
The mission of the Undergraduate Research Office is to increase undergraduate research outputs through 1) coordinated research capacity building and support; 2) facilitation of ethics review of undergraduate applications; and 3) making funding available for research-related costs, as well as for opportunities to publish papers and present findings at conferences. This office also liaises with Faculty staff and management and with student leadership bodies to ensure that research-related policies, activities and resources are aligned with curricula requirements and with student needs.
