The Student Summer Research

The Student Summer Research Committee is pleased to invite the submission of project proposals for SSRA 2022, from November 2021. 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 during Summer 2022.

For the most part, we expect that SSRA projects will be exempt from full ethical review in UCD. Various types of projects will fall into this category. As some projects will require full ethical review by the UCD School of Medicine REC, please allow enough time for this to take place in advance of the project start date. 

Further information and relevant Ethics compliance forms for the UCD School of Medicine REC can be found at this address.

Please note that SSRA students may not be insured unless UCD can verify that the proper ethics protocols have been followed.

We thank you for your cooperation on this important matter.

Supervisor Project Submission

Supervisors who wish to submit projects will be able to do so from late November though an online form which will be made available on this webpage.

Supervisors may submit no more than 3 projects each year

Please submit your project details HERE

Student / Supervisor Matching

After reviewing the projects, students fill out an application form detailing the project they would like to undertake and then meet the supervisor in question. As part of this application the student will be asked to write a 100 word summary detailing why they would like to be considered for this project.

If more than one student has applied for a project, it is up to the supervisor to select - based on GPA or interview - the student and then make his or her own selection as to their candidate of choice.
