Promoting exploration and innovation across campus
COVID-19 Operations Update:
Based on information on the UGA COVID-19 website, 2020 Maymester and Summer course offerings will be online only. Therefore, faculty-mentored undergraduate research courses IDIS 4900R, IDIS 4960R, IDIS 4970R, and IDIS 4980R will not be offered through the Department of Infectious Diseases for Maymester or summer sessions. Students who have completed one or more semesters of research in these courses and wish to write a thesis based on accumulated results may register for thesis course IDIS 4990R, but this course must be completed online. If normal operations resume for the Fall 2020 semester, the research courses will be offered in Fall 2020. For questions, please contact Ms. Jennifer Leyting at email@example.com.
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, student may not receive credit for IDIS courses for the same hours for which they are paid.
