Undergraduate Research

With access to Yale’s extensive collections and resources, our undergraduates have discovered new species, patented products, and co-authored original research.

Department of Mathematics

Undergraduate research, summer undergraduate research at yale (sumry).

The SUMRY program is a ten-­week undergraduate research program run by the mathematics department at Yale University, usually between early June and early August. In a recent year , there were 15-20 funded positions for undergraduates to investigate open research problems in the mathematical sciences. Students work either individually or in small groups, directed by faculty members, post­doctoral fellows, and graduate students. The work pursued in this program will give participants an idea of what research in mathematics is like.

Directed Reading Program

The Directed Reading Program pairs undergraduate students with graduate student mentors to read and work through a mathematics text over the course of one semester. The pairs meet once each week for one hour, with the undergraduates expected to do about 4 hours of independent reading per week. At the end of the semester, undergraduates either give a talk to their peers or prepare a short exposition of some of the material from the semester. Undergraduates are expected to have a high level of mathematical maturity and eagerness to learn the topic.

Math 470 is an individual studies course, it can be taken for graduation credit (but not applied toward undergraduate math major requirements). By default, it can be taken only once, though under exceptional circumstances, the DUS may permit it to be taken twice. Interested students must submit a proposal to math.dus@yale.edu at least three days before the end of add / drop period, with the name of their adviser, and details about the proposed study (both its content and the structure of the course). Typically, the class will require weekly meetings with the adviser, it will have some assignments along the way (that are to be written up or presented to the adviser), and it will terminate with a final paper or project. Please note that university rules do not allow independent study on topics that are taught in existing courses (there can be a bit of overlap, but you cannot do independent study to learn Math 370, for example). 

Post-Baccalaureate Programs

  • Programs of Study

GSAS students in seminar

Are you a recent college graduate who is highly motivated to pursue a research career? See if one of our post-baccalaureate programs is right for you.

To participate in any of the post-baccalaureate programs:

  • You must be a US citizen or US permanent resident.
  • You must have earned your bachelor’s degree in a relevant field prior to the mid-June start of the program, but no more than three years before the start of the program.

If you are from a background that has been underrepresented in your chosen field of study, you are strongly encouraged to apply. This includes first-generation college graduates, students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, and women in some STEM fields.

National Institutes of Health Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program

The NIH PREP at Yale is a program that helps recent bachelor’s degree recipients gain the research skills and academic credentials needed to become competitive applicants to, and successful students in, highly selective PhD programs in the biological and biomedical sciences. Participants conduct independent laboratory research under the supervision of a faculty mentor, take Yale courses, and participate in program-specific seminars and workshops, as well as institutional training activities with beginning graduate students in the Biological and Biomedical Sciences. All NIH PREP participants are expected to apply to PhD programs to begin graduate study immediately following successful completion of the program. 

Note: The NIH PREP is intended to be a one-year program and is primarily for participants interested in pursuing a PhD. If you plan to pursue an MD, you are not eligible to participate. If you plan to pursue an MD/PhD, at the mid-June start of the Yale NIH PREP you must have completed the MCAT exam with a competitive score and you should be well into the application process for MD/PhD programs.

Emerging Scholars Initiative (ESI) Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program

The ESI PREP is intended to be a one-year program and provides participants the knowledge and skills necessary for success in PhD programs. Participants experience life as graduate students at a major research university, taking courses, doing research, and receiving mentoring alongside first year PhD students. This initiative is open to recent college graduates in all divisions (i.e., humanities, social sciences, physical sciences, and engineering) who have a strong desire to pursue a PhD.

NEW: History of Art Two-Year ESI PREP: The History of Art Two-Year ESI PREP is for individuals who plan to pursue careers as academics or museum curators. These two-year positions are designed to prepare participants for PhD programs in the history of art. The first year will focus on GRE preparation (if necessary), research and library skills, and coursework at Yale designed to strengthen transcripts and help ensure the completion of graduate school prerequisites. The second year of the program will consist of a seminar each semester and a research project in the field of interest. The knowledge and skills that participants develop during this two-year program will prepare them for success in PhD programs in art history and regional studies, which lead to careers in broad fields that span the arts, humanities, and sciences, including academic positions, museum leadership roles, conservation, and library sciences.  

Cultural Heritage Research and Practice (CHRP) Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program

The Cultural Heritage Research and Practice (CHRP) Two-Year Post-Baccalaureate Program is intended for individuals with an interest in pursuing careers as cultural heritage professionals. These two-year positions are designed to prepare participants for PhD programs in fields relating to cultural heritage research and practice. The first year will focus on GRE preparation (if necessary), research and library skills, and coursework at Yale designed to strengthen transcripts and help ensure the completion of graduate school prerequisites. The second year will be a practicum during which participants work with specific museum and library collections based on their interest, aptitude, and career goals. The knowledge and skills that participants develop during this two-year program will prepare them for success in PhD programs in fields that span the arts, humanities, and sciences, including art history, conservation, library sciences, chemistry, ecology and evolutionary biology, and other sciences. 

Program Details and Application

The PREP online application opens on November 1 and is due by 11:59 PM on February 28 unless otherwise stated on the application.

Post-baccalaureate program participants receive a stipend of $38,400 over 12 months for living expenses. Participants also receive financial support that covers tuition for one or more courses per semester during the academic year, health insurance, GRE preparation material provided by Kaplan Review (if necessary), $1100 for a new laptop computer, and up to $2000 for expenses related to attending at least one conference in the US. Participants are required to live in New Haven and use a portion of their stipend to cover housing and other living expenses.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) PREP and the Emerging Scholars Initiative (ESI) PREP are typically one-year programs that run from mid-June to mid-May. The NEW History of Art Two-Year ESI PREP and the Cultural Heritage Research and Practice (CHRP) Post-Baccalaureate Program are two-year programs that both begin in mid-June. 

NIH PREP participants may only take one course per semester and will spend 75% of their time conducting independent research supervised by a faculty mentor. The balance of their time will be devoted to the activities listed below.

ESI PREP, History of Art Two-Year ESI PREP, and CHRP Two-Year Post-Baccalaureate Program participants are not limited to one course per semester. Research projects and coursework will be determined with input from faculty mentors and program directors based on individual assessments. Participants’ experiences will be similar to NIH PREP participants for the first year and as described below for the second year.

research programs yale

Q: Can I contact a faculty member directly? A: Yes of course!

Q: What will happen if I apply here? A: A committee of faculty and staff members review applications regularly and try to match applicants with faculty members. If there is a match, the faculty member(s) will contact you directly to follow up.

Q: Is there a deadline for applications? A: While we review applications as we receive them, we encourage you to submit your application by December 15th if you are interested in opportunities in the coming summer.

Q: Where can I find information about potential internship projects? A: Many faculty members provide information about their research on their personal or lab websites. We do not maintain a list of potential projects at this point.

Q: Does the internship require physical presence in New Haven, CT? A: It depends on the research project. Many CS research projects can be perfectly carried out remotely. We have had several successful virtual internships in the past two years, especially since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Q: Does the internship pay? A: It depends on the research projects. A full-time internship can receive a stipend commensurate with that of doctoral students.

Q: Does the program consider International Students? A: Yes! We have had international student interns both physically (pre-pandemic) and virtually (post-pandemic).

Q: Does the program sponsor the necessary visa for an international student to physically visit Yale? A: We used to do it before the pandemic. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Yale has stopped sponsoring visas for visiting international students. This may change as the pandemic situation improves, but only virtual/remote internships are possible for international students at this point.

Q: Does the program cover my travel cost? A: It depends on the research projects.

Q: Does the internship provide health benefits or housing? A: No, you will be responsible for both.

Q: If I have applied here but not heard from you, what should I do? A: In general, if you have not heard from any Yale CS faculty member, that means a match has not been found yet. If it has been six months or there is any significant change in your credentials, you are welcome to apply again. You should also feel free to directly contact faculty members that you are interested in working with.

America, China, and Eurasia Program

China’s ascendance to great power status is the defining feature of the twenty-first century, while Putin’s Russia remains deeply disruptive to the U.S.-led liberal world order. As the United States turns inward to contain and mitigate the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, China and Russia are seeking to fill that leadership void in Asia, Europe, and on the world stage.

The 2018 U.S. National Defense Strategy for the first time identified the “re-emergence of long-term, strategic competition,” and “not terrorism,” as the primary American national security concern—a position that the Biden Administration has maintained. Deciphering Russian goals vis-à-vis Eurasia, as well as Chinese intentions with regards to the Indo-Pacific region, can help prevent intense geopolitical competition from inadvertently escalating into conflict. This new ISS project combines the study of history with current policy analysis.

ISS affiliated practitioners include Amb. Susan Thornton , Senior Fellow at the Paul Tsai China Center, Yale Law School. A retired senior diplomat with nearly three decades of experience, Amb. Thornton is the former acting U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, where she was responsible for stabilizing relations with Taiwan and the U.S.-China Cyber Agreement, among other critical assignments.

Stephen Roach , former Chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia and a Senior Fellow at the YLS Paul Tsai China Center, and Amb. David Rank , a Jackson Senior Fellow and former acting U.S. Ambassador to China, also participate in this program.

Nuclear Security Program

Nuclear weapons are once again at the top of the scholarly and policy agenda after being on the sidelines of discourse for decades. Russia’s 2022 invasion of Ukraine and Putin’s brinkmanship have reignited concerns over nuclear war. Prospects for arms control agreements between the United States, Russia, and China appear dim, with the termination of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty and China’s nuclear buildup. Efforts to curb Iran’s nuclear program face important challenges, and North Korea continues to develop its nuclear arsenal.

To better understand and address these increasingly complex and challenging realities, ISS launched the Nuclear Security Program (NSP), led by Associate Professor of Political Science Alexandre Debs .

Schmidt Program on Artificial Intelligence, Emerging Technologies, and National Power

The Schmidt Program fosters research and teaching that span the disciplines of computer science, data science, economics, engineering, history, international relations, law, philosophy, physics, and political science. It serves as a hub for scholars and practitioners working across disciplines on the technological and strategic transformations that are reshaping our world.

Cyberspace is now the backbone of global commerce, communication, and defense systems, and a key aspect of the critical infrastructure that powers modern civilization. Technologies and information spread nearly instantaneously, while the world economy and supply chains are integrated to a degree unprecedented in history.

Yet despite the immense benefits that have resulted from global connectivity, significant vulnerabilities persist, and threats are on the rise. Competition over strategic technologies and contests for advantage in the “information space” are growing, so far without standard international rules of the road. Moreover, the future likely will prove even more transformative due to advances in artificial intelligence (AI). Machines capable of sophisticated information processing, towards the frontier of autonomy, pose tremendous opportunities for economic growth and societal well-being. But the potential threats also are extraordinary: autonomous weaponry, AI-augmented cyberwarfare, sophisticated disinformation campaigns, and geopolitical instability as nations race to deploy these unpredictable technologies. The Schmidt Program examines how AI has the potential to alter the fundamental building blocks of world order.  

Research Programs

The Cowles Foundation provides support for research and research related activities through seven core Research Program Areas: Algorithms, Data, and Market Design ;  Econometrics ;  Economic Theory ;  Industrial Organization ;  International Trade ;  Labor and Public Economics ; and Macroeconomics . Each of these broad areas has deep ties to the Cowles tradition and provides a foundation for other fields of inquiry in economics and related fields.

Cowles Program Areas sponsor visiting faculty and post-docs, organize conferences, and provide other research resources at Yale.

2024 Top Research Awards Announced

Yale School of Public Health (YSPH) Associate Dean of Research Melinda Irwin Wednesday announced the recipients of this year’s top research awards.

“Congratulations to the YSPH faculty who were awarded YSPH Research Prizes for manuscripts published in 2023,” said Irwin, Susan Dwight Bliss Professor of Epidemiology (Chronic Diseases). “YSPH faculty published more than 1,100 papers in 2023, and these six papers were recognized for their novel approaches and significant findings, focused on critically important public health issues (e.g., opioid use disorder, environmental carcinogens, breastfeeding) using novel methods and approaches such as electronic medical record data of health outcomes linked to residential addresses’ drinking water supplies and incubating colorectal cancer organoids with PFAS resulting in expression of metastasis-related proteins. “

Here is a list of this year’s award winners:

YSPH Early Career Investigator Research Prize

Liew, Z., Meng, Q., Yan, Q., Schullehner, J., Hansen, B., Kristiansen, S. M., Voutchkova, D. D., Olsen, J., Ersbøll, A. K., Ketzel, M., Raaschou-Nielsen, O., & Ritz, B. R. (2023). Association Between Estimated Geocoded Residential Maternal Exposure to Lithium in Drinking Water and Risk for Autism Spectrum Disorder in Offspring in Denmark. JAMA Pediatrics .

Dr. Liew and his team conducted a nationwide nested case-control study using medical records to capture ASD diagnoses in Denmark, and then created a model to estimate lithium levels in drinking water supplies linked to every residential address in Denmark. They are the first to report a novel association between maternal exposure to lithium in drinking water and child ASD. The study findings have been widely reported in the media, including the New York Times, CNN, and NBC.

YSPH Investigator Research Prize

Yize Zhao, Changgee Chang, Jingwen Zhang & Zhengwu Zhang. Genetic Underpinnings of Brain Structural Connectome for Young Adults . Journal of the American Statistical Association .

With the primary goal of her paper to uncover genetic underpinnings to brain structural connectome variations among young adult populations, Dr. Zhao developed an innovative Bayesian analytical framework and identified genetic biomarkers and validated the reliability of these scientific findings with an external database. The developed methods are readily applicable for use in biobanks and brain imaging genetic landmark studies, which offers a great potential for understanding the genetic bases and directing intervention targets for neurological and psychiatric research for public health outcomes.

YSPH Team Science Prize

Robert Heimer and Lauretta Grau from YSPH

Receipt of opioid use disorder treatments prior to fatal overdoses and comparison to no treatment in Connecticut, 2016–17 . Heimer R, Black AC, Lin H, Grau LE, Fiellin DA, Howell BA, Hawk K, D’Onofrio G, Becker WC. Drug and Alcohol Dependence .

Dr. Heimer and team compiled and merged state agency data on opioid overdose deaths and exposures to opioid use disorder treatment to determine incidence rates following exposure to different treatment modalities. Exposure to treatment reduced the relative risk by 38% compared to non-medication treatment. These findings have been presented to statewide advisory boards, and in February Dr. Heimer presented the results at the federal level to an interagency group convened by the Office of National Drug Control Policy, with the goal of expanding access to OUD treatment.

Caroline Johnson and other YSPH faculty members Krystal Pollitt and Lingeng Lu

Zheng, J., Sun, B., Berardi, D., Lu, L., Yan, H., Zheng, S., Aladelokun, O., Xie, Y., Cai, Y., Godri Pollitt, K. J., Khan, S. A., & Johnson, C. H. (2023). Perfluorooctanesulfonic Acid and Perfluorooctanoic Acid Promote Migration of Three-Dimensional Colorectal Cancer Spheroids . Environmental Science & Technology .

PFAS are widespread environmental contaminants that accumulate in the environment and body, and are found in man-made products such as cosmetics, cookware, food packaging, and carpets. Even though PFAS have been linked to cancer, and recently classified as Group 1 carcinogens, there has been limited research on the effects of these chemicals in colorectal cancer (CRC). Dr. Caroline Johnson and her team found that when CRC human organoids are incubated with occupational exposure levels of PFOS, they exhibit increased motility and expression of metastasis-related proteins. Their study was the first to show that PFAS can elicit a metastatic phenotype in CRC cells when PFAS were at levels comparable to those seen in the blood of those occupationally exposed, such as firefighters.

YSPH Impact Research Prize

Rafael Pérez-Escamilla

Rafael Pérez-Escamilla, Cecília Tomori, Sonia Hernández-Cordero, Phillip Baker, Aluisio J D Barros, France Bégin, Donna J Chapman, Laurence M Grummer-Strawn, David McCoy, Purnima Menon, Paulo Augusto Ribeiro Neves, Ellen Piwoz, Nigel Rollins, Cesar G Victora, Linda Richter, on behalf of the 2023 Lancet Breastfeeding Series Group* Breastfeeding: crucially important, but increasingly challenged in a market-driven world . Lancet .

This article has been cited over 140 times since it was published in February 2023. The article involved scholars from around the world working together for over two years updating the evidence on breastfeeding benefits, and evidence-based approaches to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding on a large scale, heavily considering the economic, social, political, and commercial determinants of infant feeding. The article is based on a strong and innovative conceptual framework and is informed by original data analyses of large epidemiological studies, as well as eight systematic reviews and one meta-analysis commissioned by the World Health Organization. This work is already having a strong impact in reshaping breastfeeding initiatives, policies, and programs across the globe.

David Paltiel and Gregg Gonsalves

Paltiel AD, Ahmed AR, Jin EY, McNamara M, Freedberg KA, Neilan AM, and Gonsalves GS. Increased HIV transmissions with reduced insurance coverage for HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis: Potential consequences of Braidwood Management v. Becerra . Open Forum Infectious Diseases

This study evaluates the potential public health consequences of a recent U.S. federal court ruling that deemed it unconstitutional for the Affordable Care Act to require employers to cover HIV prevention with pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). The authors found that this ruling could result in more than 2,000 preventable HIV infections in the coming year alone. In the 24 hours following publication, the paper achieved an Altimetric score of 149. It received widespread national attention, including coverage in the New York Times, the Boston Globe, and the American Journal of Managed Care. The paper was selected as a Best of 2023 by the editors-in-chief of the journals of the Infectious Disease Society of America. Their paper was the central analytic element of several friend-of-the-court (amicus) briefs filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, urging reversal of the lower court ruling, including the HIV Medicine Association and National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors, the American Public Health Association, the Yale Law School, and others.

Students and Faculty Mentors Celebrated at Student Research Day

Student research day scientific poster session, student research day, shelli farhadian, md, phd, and john k. forrest, md, peter aronson, md, c.n.h. long professor of medicine (nephrology) and professor of cellular and molecular physiology.

On May 7, 2024, students and faculty mentors were celebrated at Yale School of Medicine’s (YSM) Student Research Day (SRD), an annual tradition at YSM since 1988. Five medical students (Chinye Ijile, Amanda Lieberman, Kingson Lin, Victoria Marks, and Jamieson O’Marr) made thesis presentations, and over 75 students, from across Yale’s health profession schools, displayed scientific posters and engaged with attendees during the poster session.

“Today we’re showcasing a diverse range of mentored research—spanning from fundamental basic science, to implementation science—performed by student investigators from across the health professions schools,” Associate Dean for Student Research Sarwat Chaudhry, MD, professor of medicine (general medicine), said in opening remarks. Associate Dean for Student Research Erica Herzog, MD, PhD, John Slade Ely Professor of Medicine (pulmonary) and professor of pathology, added, “We take immense pride in Yale’s deep-rooted tradition of embedding research within medical education. For our students, experience in scientific investigation isn't merely a stepping stone towards a successful residency match or a career in academic research; it's foundational training for their lifelong commitment to medicine.”

Farr Lecture

The Lee E. Farr MD Endowed Lectureship and the presentation of the Dr. John N. Forrest, Jr., Mentorship Award, which bookended the student thesis presentations, honored YSM faculty for their outstanding mentorship. In introducing Peter Aronson, MD, C.N.H. Long Professor of Medicine (Nephrology) and professor of cellular and molecular physiology, as the Farr lecturer, Nancy J. Brown, MD, Jean and David W. Wallace Dean and C.N.H. Long Professor of Internal Medicine, explained that the lecture aims to stimulate thinking and to inspire students to strive to achieve more effective leadership and educational roles in society. Brown said that Aronson, who has been at YSM for 50 years since joining as a nephrology fellow in 1974, “epitomizes these qualities as a physician-scientist, educator, mentor, and colleague. As such, there is no one more fitting to speak at today’s event.”

As chief of the Section of Nephrology from 1987-2002, Brown said, Aronson nurtured the development of numerous physician-scientists, both as faculty and fellows, many of whom became recognized leaders—and many of whom remain at Yale and were present on SRD. “It goes without saying” Brown concluded, “that Dr. Aronson’s stewardship is one reason for the enduring strength of Yale’s 200-year tradition of medical student research,” noting he had been part of the tradition for one quarter of the 200 years. (In comments after Aronson spoke, Herzog noted several of his student evaluations simply said GOAT: “Greatest Of All Time.”)

Using his own experiences as examples in his lecture titled From Sugar to Salt to Stones: Serendipitous Journey as Mentee and Mentor, Aronson noted the importance of chance events and serendipitous research findings in determining the course of his academic development and research career. ( This article describes his remarks in detail .) In closing, Aronson honored the late John N. Forrest, Jr., professor emeritus of medicine and the founding director of YSM’s Office of Student Research (OSR). Forrest, he said, “exemplified extraordinary commitment to the process of education and mentorship,” adding “we should all be inspired by his example of what is most gratifying in academic medicine.”

Dr. John N. Forrest, Jr., Mentorship Award

Chaudhry similarly honored John N. Forrest, Jr. in introducing the mentorship award established to recognize his legacy. “As many of you know, Dr. Forrest died earlier this year, and so this year’s Forrest Prize holds special meaning.” OSR “was his pride and joy,” Chaudhry said, adding that since starting their roles as associate deans of student research in 2020, “Dr. Herzog and I have continually been impressed by Dr. Forrest’s care and foresight in establishing the Office of Student Research. Dr. Forrest’s legacy lives on in the enduring strength of YSM’s medical student research program.”

Before Forrest’s son, John K. Forrest, MD, associate professor of medicine (cardiovascular medicine), announced the award recipient— Shelli Farhadian, MD, PhD, assistant professor of medicine (infectious diseases); assistant professor, epidemiology of microbial diseases —he shared, “My family and I are grateful to the numerous people who reached out after our father’s passing. Some of the most touching correspondence we received were from medical students, residents, and fellows whom he had mentored while at Yale. There is no greater evidence of the lasting impact that mentorship plays in the lives of young physicians that the words contained in those letters.”

Turning to the awardee, Forrest said, “Dr. Farhadian is an exemplary mentor,” and pointed to her role “in shaping the careers of her mentees, many of whom have garnered multiple awards and recognition, and published first author manuscripts under her tutelage.”

He then shared what a student wrote about Farhadian: “Dr. Farhadian is such a fantastic mentor and person. As my mentor she encouraged me to apply for grants and submit to conferences and journals and has always made herself available to answer any questions that I have. She also facilitates an environment in which her mentees feel comfortable coming to her with questions and offers help in connecting me with doctors in my fields of interest. Beyond my research with Dr. Farhadian, she has also proved to be an invaluable resource in terms of developing as a student and a future doctor. She is an inspiring woman in medicine, and I hope to become as caring and capable as a doctor and mentor as she models.”

Upon receiving the award, Farhadian said, “It means a great deal for me to receive this award in Dr. Forrest’s name. I was lucky to cross paths with Dr. Forrest when I was an intern, and I will always remember how kind he was to everyone in the hospital, no matter how small their role.” Farhadian added, “I feel very lucky to have had my own exceptional research mentors along the way, and I have tried to emulate them when mentoring my own trainees.”

During the ceremony, Air Force ROTC Commander Col. Les Oberg noted the “incredible talents, leadership, and commitment to service” of each of the cadets and midshipmen.

“ You will no doubt lead our armed forces to new heights,” he said. “And our services, like our country, need you for the daunting challenges ahead. Thank you for stepping up.”

Oberg also expressed gratitude to Yale President Peter Salovey, attending his final commissioning ceremony as Yale’s leader before his planned return to the faculty in June, and First Lady Marta Moret for their “continued and unwavering investment and support” of Yale’s ROTC programs. “The levels of success we have achieved in such a short amount of time on campus are a direct result,” he said.

A keynote address was offered by Bill Nelson, a NASA administrator and former U.S. senator who was an Army ROTC graduate in Yale’s Class of 1965. Since Nelson was unable attend the ceremony because of professional obligations, his remarks were read by Bruce Smathers, a former secretary of state for the state of Florida and Nelson’s roommate at Yale.
