Student Summer Research Opportunity with IU School of Medicine

Vicki Bonds Director of Health Professions and Pre-Doctoral Programs with the IU School of Medicine shared great information with Pike students about the IU Simon Cancer Center Summer Research Program (SRP).  This program is designed to increase the number of high school and undergraduate students from underrepresented populations pursuing biomedical and behavioral science careers by providing positive and meaningful firsthand exposure to these fields.

During the eight-week program (June 4-July 27, 2018), participants work and are compensated for 40 hours each week. Full-time attendance is mandatory throughout the program’s duration. Of course, unforeseen emergencies and school-related obligations may come up, thus, some flexibility may be allowed. However, due to the rigorous nature of the program, a commitment to daily attendance is required.

Selected participants will be paired with a research mentor. Research projects may involve laboratory-based research, computer-based database research or clinical research. Students will learn about research methodology and will complete a project over the summer months. They will present their findings as well as give oral presentations. Applicants are expected to actively participate in all aspects of the program, including professional development. Applications are due Feb. 23, 2018. Questions? Contact IU School of Medicine’s Health Professions Programs at askhpp@iupui.edu.
