The Medical Student Research Program is seeking faculty to mentor rising 2nd year medical students for a 9-week summer research experience in 2018. We welcome research project ideas covering the spectrum of basic science, clinical, and community research. We are particularly interested in research projects that address the priorities of NIH’s NIDDK, a primary source of funding for this program.
The role of the faculty mentor includes project supervision and guidance, provision of necessary space, supplies and equipment, and oversight of IRB or IACUC interactions in accordance with the needs of the project. A faculty member may mentor no more than two medical students at the same time.
If you have a research project that would be appropriate for a medical student, please complete this brief survey no later than December 31, 2017.
All submitted projects will be shared with students at the MSRP informational meeting on January 4, 2018. Students will contact faculty to discuss the project and determine mutual interest.
