The Summer Undergraduate Internship Program (SUIP) is designed to provide an intense research experience to students interested in pursuing graduate studies in the biomedical sciences. Interns complete ten weeks of full-time laboratory research, attend state-of-the-art research seminars, and deliver scientific presentations to their peers and mentors. In addition, interns receive training in responsible conduct of research, laboratory safety, and presentation skills. Interns are also invited to career counseling sessions in which faculty and administrators discuss graduate school and career opportunities for biomedical scientists.
Areas of research include:
- Biochemistry & Biomolecular Biophysics
- Cell & Molecular Biology
- Epidemiology & Biostatistics
- Genomics & Computational Biology
How to apply: The SUIP application is available online and must be submitted by February 1, 2016
