About SSRA

Each year, over 75 of our undergraduate students undertake eight-week supervised laboratory, clinical or patient-advocate projects in Ireland or at one of our partner institutions.
The programme brings to life our commitment to foster in our students a passion for enquiry, discovery and investigative research. Participation provides students with invaluable experience in the area of investigative medical science, and is consistent with the School's ambition to produce not just exceptional healthcare practitioners, but also life-long learners and world-class medical researchers.
