Summer Scholars Undergraduates
Undergraduate students: This opportunity is offered through the SENS Research Foundation (SRF). 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 Parkinson's disease. Under the guidance of a scientific mentor, each Summer Scholar will be responsible for his or her own research project in such areas as genetic engineering and stem cell research. The Summer Scholars Program emphasizes development of both laboratory and communication skills to develop well-rounded scientists who who can work equally well with other scientists or the general public. 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 institutitions.
The online application and full descriptions of each research project can be found here. Applications will be accepted until February 1, 2016. Only applications submitted at the SRF website will be considered.
