February 24, 2012 - Summer Research Proposal Deadline Approaching
The deadline to submit proposals for the 2012 Medical Student Summer Research Program is Wednesday, Feb. 29, 2012.
The Summer Research Program for incoming freshman or rising sophomore medical students is a 10-week program (June 1, 2012, through Aug. 3, 2012) that pairs medical students with faculty mentors. The program is open to all areas of basic science and clinical research.
The program has been very successful in mentoring first and second year medical students, providing valuable research experience that will benefit them as they continue their medical careers. This program also generates productive research and pioneers new projects for investigators within the College of Medicine. Collaborative projects between investigators are encouraged.
Student stipend support is provided through the Dean’s office, AHA or NIH T32 (Dr. Mary Townsley).
Research Day will be held on Friday, Aug. 3, 2012, at 8:30 a.m. in the Medical Sciences Building auditorium beginning with oral presentations and followed by the Research Day guest speaker, lunch and poster presentation at noon.
