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.

- 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.
