Kinesiology Associate Professors Matthew Brothers and Michael Nelson recently founded a new undergraduate research initiative at UTA. The Summer Research Program in Integrative Physiology allows undergraduate students to gain firsthand laboratory experience, research skills, and opportunities to be mentored while also learning what postgraduate research and education looks like.

“This program was a perfect blend of what you want in an undergraduate research program, with opportunities for both autonomous thinking and collaboration,” says Natalia Cardenas, senior biology major. “I not only shadowed the researcher, but I also was able to be immersed in research protocols.”
