The goal of the program is to engage scientific curiosity in the next generation of scientists, challenging qualified college undergraduates to consider basic science research-related careers and providing them with initial experiences required to be competitive for science related continued education and careers in the future. See the CDCB Summer Internship Program for more information. You may contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
CBP-SURP is a 9-week program designed to provide undergraduates research opportunities at the interface of chemistry, biology and physiology in the health sciences. A major goal of this program is to engage students in state-of the-art techniques in chemical biology, and how strategies in chemical biology can be used to interrogate cell signaling, protein function, and identify potential therapeutic targets. For additional information, including program details, how to apply, and application deadline, please see the CBP-SURP announcement. You may contact email@example.com with any questions.
The summer clinical research internship program within the Department of Surgery invites motivated university and medical students to apply for the opportunity to perform research related to an ongoing clinical research study overseen by our surgery faculty. This eight-week program is designed for students with an interest in the research behind healthcare and what it means to be employed by a university hospital. Interns will work in pairs on a prospective study, culminating in the completion and submission of an abstract for acceptance at a local surgery conference. In addition to study analysis, interns will have the opportunity to shadow surgery faculty in clinic and the OR, attend weekly OHSU surgery conferences with faculty, and participate in workshops that illuminate the path toward improved health care through research and innovation. Summer 2018 application due date and requirements.

The Summer Fellowship Program supports students in 10-week apprenticeships for which a $3000 stipend is received (successful applicants who live out of state may be eligible for assistance with travel expenses). Principal Investigators in the Divisions of Neuroscience, Reproductive Sciences, and Pathobiology and Immunology oversee research programs related to high-priority medical needs that are expected to increase in importance and funding emphasis over the coming decades. These include research in neurodevelopment, neuroendocrinology, neurodegeneration, cancer, aging, mental illness, brain injury, addiction, obesity, reproductive health, immune response to infectious agents, and stem cells. Specific project details and application materials are available at here
