Summer Undergraduate Research Internship

InternPic2017

The best way to lure the brightest young minds to a career in biomedical research is to give them the opportunity to work in the laboratories of some of the nation's top scientists. Houston Methodist offers a 10-week summer student program for college undergraduates and medical students. The program matches students with faculty mentors in laboratories and focuses on a single research project. During this time, students attend required weekly didactic lectures given by the mentors and invited speakers.

The program also provides numerous opportunities for professional and career development, mentorship under faculty members, such as Philip Horner, PhD (pictured, second-to-right), and Ennio Tasciotti, PhD (pictured, right), and social and networking opportunities, including a welcome reception, a sporting event and a retreat at the end of the program during which students present their work. Some students even continue to work with their mentors at the conclusion of the internship, and in some cases get to see their projects conclude in co-authored publications.
