Summer Student Research Awards are three-month paid summer internships designed to introduce undergraduate students to biomedical and occupational health research across a range of basic and applied research areas. Whether studying molecules, cells, organ systems, non-human organisms, or out gathering data in the community, our students gained valuable experience conducting projects aligned with their host faculty member’s research program.
