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.
Program begins on May 29, 2018.
Each year, applications from undergraduate and underrepresented minority-in-science 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. Please note that students are required to provide their own health insurance coverage during the summer program.
Students will need to select faculty mentors in the following fields:
- Cell and molecular biology
- Cancer biology
- Cardiovascular disease
- Immunology, neuroscience
