The SRF Summer Scholars Program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct biomedical research to combat diseases of aging, such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, and macular degeneration. Under the guidance of one or more scientific mentors, each Summer Scholar is responsible for his or her own research project in such areas as tissue engineering, genetic engineering, and science policy. The Summer Scholars Program emphasizes development of not only laboratory skills but also communication skills as well. Students participating in the program will hone their writing skills via periodic reports, which are designed to emulate text scientists commonly must produce. Additionally, a poster presentation at a SRF-sponsored conference at the end of the summer will provide students with an opportunity to present their results to scientists from other research institutions.
Paid positions are available at such world-renowned research institutions as:
– Buck Institute for Research on Aging
– Harvard Stem Cell Institute/Harvard School of Medicine
– Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute
– Scripps Research Institute, SRF Research Center
– SRF Research Center
– Stanford University
– Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine
Applications will be accepted until 12PM PST February 2, 2015.
