Description:
The SRF Summer Scholars Program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct biomedical research to combat diseases of aging, such as cancer, atherosclerosis, and Alzheimer?s Disease. Under the guidance of a scientific mentor, each Summer Scholar is responsible for his or her own research project in such areas as genetic engineering and stem cell research. The Program emphasizes both laboratory and communication skills training to develop well-rounded future scientists, healthcare professionals, and policy makers.

The Summer Scholars Program sets itself apart from many other internship program with its focus on the development of scientific communication skills in addition to enhancing laboratory and critical thinking skills. Throughout the summer, students participating in the program are guided through intensive writing assignments that simulate documents scientists are often asked to produce, such as grant proposals. The communication training culminates in a presentation of the results of their work to peers, mentors, and other scientists. Other program highlights include a flexible start date and eligibility for international students (via CPT) and graduating seniors to participate.

Program Learning Objectives:

1. Plan and execute an independent research project.

2. Learn new technical skills.

3. Learn how to explain scientific concepts to a non-scientific audience.

4. Learn how to write a simple grant proposal.

5. Give a formal research presentation to scientists.
