Call for SSRA2018 Research Projects

Thu, 11 January 18 14:28

We are delighted to announce that the Summer Student Research Awards (SSRA) Programme 2018 is open again for project submission.

Proposals are sought for eight-week laboratory, clinical, patient-centred or educational research projects, to be undertaken by our undergraduate students within the College of Health and Agricultural Sciences and College of Engineering and Architecture during Summer 2018.

If your project has ethical approval, or is exempt from full ethics review, we ask that you upload a copy of the relevant approval letter to our new online form. If you do not think your project requires ethical approval, or exemption from full review, there is an option on the form for you to select. However, we will ask you to state why you think this is the case (for example, the intended project might involve a student reviewing data that is already in the public domain).These measures were put in place to assist us all in complying with the mandatory ethics requirements for UCD undergraduate students undertaking research as part of their degree programmes.

For submitting projects, you must upload your project to the form that is available here
