NIAMS Program Trains New Generation of Scientists
This summer, 18 students from all regions of the United States spent 8 weeks in the NIAMS Summer Research Program. They received career mentoring from senior researchers, participated in poster sessions, attended lectures and symposia and engaged in basic and clinical research.
The valuable experience they gained at NIH will help them achieve their career goals in biomedical research and academic medicine. “I feel honored to have had this experience, as it allowed me to learn lab techniques and think like a scientist under the guidance of helpful mentors,” said one intern. “I absolutely recommend this program to all individuals who are looking to do world-renowned biomedical research,” said another student.
The NIAMS Summer Research Program provides outstanding training opportunities for high school, undergraduate, graduate and medical students. Students can apply online at https://www.training.nih.gov/programs/sip. The application for summer 2017 will be available in mid-November.
