Program Activities

PREP fellows get to do a broad range of activities during the year  the program lasts.

  • Each fellow has the opportunity to job-shadow a professional who works in industry or in a non-academic setting and whose job is related to the career interests of the fellow.
  • All fellows get to visit one or two local biotech/pharma companies where they receive a tour accompanied with talks and lectures from some of the scientists who work there.

  • Fellows have the opportunity to give back to the community by volunteering in science fairs and events.
  • In May  all fellows present their research at the UW Undergraduate Research Symposium
