Student Research Portal

The Student Research Portal is a comprehensive source of information for students and researchers, allowing them to connect in a variety of ways.

Curricular coursework options Clinician Scientist Track MD-PhD Extra-curricular non-coursework options

Connecting students with supervisors and their research

All projects that are available for students must be listed on the Student Research Portal.
A research supervisor may 'Post a project', or a student may 'Suggest a project'.

For Students

Search the portal for available projects using the 'Find a project' button; or propose a project and supervisor not yet listed on the portal using the 'Suggest a project' form.

For Researchers

Advertise student projects on the portal using the 'Post a project' form.

*** Medical students must not embark on any research project until all required forms have been completed AND it has been registered on the Portal. ***

This process helps ensure a worthwhile and safe research experience for the students and supervisors, and allows us to acknowledge both for their achievements.

Find a project

If you are unsure how to get started in research, the Portal’s ‘Find a Project’ database is a good place to start.  Browse the list of available projects and make an enquiry by submitting the Project Enquiry form.

Step 1: Search 'Find a Project' for area of interest, location, name or just browse. New projects are listed at the top.

Step 2: Click on the project title for more information about the research and the supervisors.

  • It is best to right click and open each project in a new tab, so that the search results are not lost.

Step 3: Click the "Enquire" button on the project summary page if you are interested and want to know more. You can attach your CV to your enquiry. After you submit you will receive an email confirmation with a copy of your enquiry.

What happens next?

If you have received a reply from the supervisor, and agreed on a project, the next step is to complete the required forms before you can begin the research.

Go to the “For Students” page and follow Step 4 and Step 5.
