Summer | Brooklyn, NYC | Paid | Research
The Summer Research Program offered by the Office of Minority Affairs is designed for undergraduate students who have historically been underrepresented in the biomedical professions (African American, Mainland Puerto Rican, Native American and Mexican American). The program is open to all qualified applicants, but it is preferred that students will have completed the sophomore year of college. Students having completed their bachelor’s degree are ineligible. The program provides eight (8) weeks of experience and participation in biomedical research. In addition, students will participate in a weekly seminar lecture series. This is an eight-week commitment. Participants should not have any other obligations that conflict with a 9-5 Monday to Friday schedule (such as jobs, or classes).
Students participating in the program will conduct research under the direction of a faculty member. Research assignments will be made based upon availability of research opportunities and according to the mutual interests of the faculty sponsors and student participants. Participants will have the opportunity to interact not only with the faculty members directing the research, but also with the medical/graduate students working at the site. A final abstract submission and oral presentations are requirements for completion of the summer program. Some past year’s Research topics have included: “Hydralazine-induced Lupus”, “In Vitro Investigation of Pressure Recovery in Aortic Valve Disease” and “DNA Fingerprinting of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis”
Fellowships in the amount of $3,000 will be awarded. 7-10 Students will be selected. Housing is not provided for Summer Research Fellows.
