Undergraduate Research Opportunities

The Physiology Department has a long history of involving undergraduate students in research. To this end, we have a Physiology Scholars Program (details here: http://physiology.med.uky.edu/physiology-scholars-program). The following labs are interested in recruiting undergraduate students into their research program, typically through an honors 395 program. If you are interested, contact the Professor directly.
