Applications for submissions for SRIMS 2017 have been closed.
Marshall University’s Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine (MU JCESOM) Graduate Program is approaching its ninth annual Summer Research Internship for Minority Students (SRIMS)!
The SRIMS program includes nine weeks of graduate-level research in the field of biomedical sciences. Participants receive formal research training while expanding their learning experience through workshops, seminars on current topics, mentoring and use of state-of-the-art core facilities.
The vision behind Marshall’s commitment to this program is twofold:
Each year, applications from undergraduate and underrepresented minority students who have not graduated by August of the program year are considered. Also, students are required to present their research at the WV Summer Research Symposium the last week of the program and should note this as they commit to the program. A stipend of $3,000 will be provided to each participant for the nine-week experience. Participants will receive free room and board, as well as assistance with travel.
Faculty mentors will provide projects that will introduce students to contemporary research
in fields of biomedical science, including: cell and molecular biology, cancer biology, cardiovascular disease, immunology, neuroscience, toxicology, reproductive biology, infectious disease, genetic research, diabetes, obesity research, and nanotechnology.
On the application, you will be asked to review the mentor directory, list your top three mentor choices in order of preference (#1 being your top choice) and why their topics are of interest to you. Your choices will serve as a guide for a mentor to be assigned. The directory of mentors and their research projects can be accessed in the Mentor Directory 2017.
To be considered complete, your application must contain the following:
The application and supporting documents are due in the office on or before February 10th, 2017.
