The Student Summer Research Committee is pleased to invite the submission of project proposals for SSRA 2021, from November 2020. 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 2021.
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.
Supervisors who wish to submit projects should complete this online form.
Supervisors may submit no more than 3 projects each year
Project proposals for SSRA 2021 can be submitted on the Supervisor Hub from November 2020 - All SSRA 2021 Projects will be available to Students from November 2020 to March 2021.
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.
