Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine (MU JCESOM) Graduate Program is offering the Summer Research Internship for Minority Students (SRIMS) for its 14th year!
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 professional networking.
The vision behind Marshall’s commitment to this program is twofold:
Each year, applications from undergraduate and underrepresented minority-in-science students who have not graduated by August of the program year are considered. We are unable to accommodate international students.
A stipend of $3,000 will be provided to each participant for the nine-week experience. Participants will receive free room and board, and travel to and from the program. Please be aware that students are required to provide their own health insurance coverage during the summer program.
Applications will be evaluated based upon the following criteria:
As a condition of acceptance into the program, program participants will be asked after their departure to update information on their educational and career activities. This tracking is done solely to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. It is critical that we be able to conduct this long-term evaluation in order to maintain continuing funding for the programs. The information collected remains strictly confidential.
Faculty mentors will provide projects that will introduce students to contemporary research in the fields of biomedical science. Areas of research include, but are not limited to, the following:
|Bioinformatics||Obesity Related Disorders|
|Addiction Neurobiology||Regulation of Intestinal Sodium, Glucose, Amino Acid Absorption|
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 2023.
To be considered complete, your application must contain the following:
