The University of Kentucky offers a 10-­week, paid laboratory experience for talented undergraduate students interested in gaining research experience in alcohol-­related disorders such as alcoholism, fetal alcohol syndrome, cancer, and pain. This is a competitive program designed for students considering a career in a science, technology, engineering or math-­related fields, but especially graduate study. Opportunities range from applied psychological approaches in humans to basic cellular mechanisms of alcohol action in cell culture. Students will spend the summer performing independent research under the supervision of faculty mentors, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, give a scientific presentation that describes their accomplishments, and have the opportunity to contribute to front-­line research in either of these areas.

Directors - Dr. Mark Prendergast and Dr. Kimberly Nixon
