Promoting exploration and innovation across campus
Our Department of Infectious Diseases offers research opportunities for students pursuing bachelor’s degrees at the University of Georgia. Several faculty members within the department mentor undergraduates in their labs through IDIS-prefix undergraduate research courses. Undergraduates may also register for these courses and conduct their research project with a faculty mentor outside the department if the project focuses on a pathogen or infectious disease.
Additionally, students who obtain a research fellowship through CURO or another organization may be able to conduct their research project with a mentor within infectious diseases. With the exception of students on research fellowships, students may not receive credit for IDIS courses for the same hours for which they are paid.
