SSRA Project Submission

Fri, 22 March 19 11:28

Final Reminder that the deadline for project submission for the Summer Student Research Awards (SSRA) Programme 2019 is Friday, March 29th 2019.

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 2019.

Further to this, now in its second year the Alfred Myles Smith Award of €1,000 will be made for the best project relating to Cardiology, Cardiac surgery, Vascular Surgery, Vascular Medicine, or if there are no suitable cardiovascular projects are available, a project relating to rare cancers will be awarded instead.

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 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 or may involve commercially available cell lines).

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.

If you are interested in hosting an SSRA student in 2019, we would be very grateful if you can upload your project using the form that is available here so it can be advertised to our students as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support of the SSRA programme and please contact ssra@ucd.ieif you have any further questions about submitting a project.
