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). 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. 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 you can apply for.
