Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Research Program

The Biomedical Engineering Research Program (BURP) is organized by biomedical engineering graduate students and faculty. The transdisciplinary program supports students across multiple faculties and labs across campus and equips them with the necessary skills and information to have a fun and successful summer research term. Students have the opportunity to refine their research skills, explore resources provided by the university, and get to know other students and researchers within the university community. Students are supported by BME Summer StudentshipsPURE Awards, or NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards


Thank you to the following partners for agreeing to sponsor students for Summer 2022:
