As a COM student at UNE, you have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty in a broad range of basic science, clinical and medical education research. Among the faculty projects there are six areas of concentration.
- Aging & Geriatrics
- Anatomy & Interventional Pain Management
- Cancer & Metabolic Disease
- Immunology & Infectious Disease
- Medical Education
- Neuroscience & Pain
UNE COM students can apply for funding to conduct research projects through either the UNE COM Dean’s office (Peter Morgane Student Research Fellowship) or the UNE COM SGA (Carmen Pettapiece Student Research Fellowship), or the Center for Excellence in Interprofessional Education. These are great opportunities if you wish to participate and obtain experience in biomedical, clinical, experiential, or translational research either at UNE or at other locations nationally/globally. Research projects can have a basic science, community health, clinical, and/or osteopathic orientation. Applications are evaluated through respective review processes and selections are made accordingly. There are also externally funded opportunities that can be applied for.
Call for UNE COM Student Research Fellowship Applications
We are currently accepting the UNE COM student research fellowship application for the 2018–2019 academic year. All current UNE COM students who are matriculated at the time of the award and in good academic standing are welcome to apply. Please note that the same application is used for both student fellowships and if you apply for both (Morgane and Pettapiece), you only need to complete the application once.
