New York University School of Medicine Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship
The Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences and the Office of Minority Affairs invites applications from students for participation in a summer research internship program in the medical sciences at New York University Medical Center.

Students may work with faculty in the disciplines of biochemistry, biomedical imaging, cellular and molecular biology, computational biology, developmental genetics, immunology, microbiology, molecular oncology, neurosciences and physiology, parasitology, pathobiology, pharmacology, structural biology and virology.

This program is open to all U.S. and international students who are currently attending a U.S. college or university only.
The program is designed for mature, well-qualified undergraduates who have completed their sophomore or junior year of college. Qualified applicants should have a 3.4 GPA or better and at least 1 full semester of bench laboratory research. The selection of students will be made considering their academic record, previous research experience, if any, and letters of recommendation from faculty advisors and/or research supervisors. Significant importance will be given to their commitment to a career in biomedical research. A committee comprised of PhD, MD, MD-PhD students and faculty will review applicants for admission.
