Finding a Research Opportunity

There are many ways to learn about basic and applied biomedical research going on at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine (UPSOM). If you are a first time visitor to UPSOM and its programs, or a student interested in applying to UPSOM, we recommend that you first view the information provided on the UPSOM's Research page, as well as UPSOM's Research Opportunities website. There you can learn about department- and institute-based research and investigate the interests of individual faculty.

If you are a current student at UPSOM, log on to the Medical Student Research Portal. The Portal provides a gateway for learning about specific areas of research, identifying potential mentors, and learning details of various programs.
