The Burke Medical Research Institute (BMRI) invites interested and qualified undergraduate students to apply to our Summer Student Research Program (SSRP). The purpose of this program is to give undergraduate students interested in pursuing a career in biomedical sciences the opportunity to conduct cutting edge research. Participants will be part of a laboratory research project related to neural repair and rehabilitation. Summer research students will have considerable direct interaction with their faculty mentors and the BMRI staff.
Program participants also attend both introductory and professional level research seminars. BMRI hosts a weekly seminar series given by international leaders in neurobiology and neurorehabilitation. The SSRP also holds a weekly summer seminar series given by BMRI faculty that is designed to engage students in discussions about specific topics in neurobiology and neurorehabilitation as well as career development in biomedical research.
The SSRP is a 10-week program that will run from June 2nd through August 8th. Participants need to be available between May 26th–May 30th for a mandatory health screening. Trainees will receive a stipend of $3,000 that begins July 1st. Housing and transportation are not provided and are the responsibility of each trainee.
