Description: 

The BioMedRAP is designed to recruit exceptional students interested in careers in biological and biomedical sciences with an intensive 10-week laboratory experience at one of the top research institutions in the nation. Participants will engage in an independent research project under the mentorship of faculty at Washington University in St. Louis. Students who have had prior research experience and are currently enrolled in a U.S. undergraduate program are encouraged to apply to BioMedRAP.

BioMedRAP participants will engage in a multitude of activities designed to build confidence and gain experience as a research scientist. In addition to independent research, Scholars will participate in lab meetings and attend scientific seminars and workshops offered throughout the summer by faculty and students. This will allow the participants to interact with those in DBBS and the university community. The workshops are on various topics such as scientific writing and presentation skills, preparing for the GRE or MCAT, team building, and career development. BioMedRAP students present a scientific poster at the end of the summer. They will also receive advice to prepare them to apply to top-tier graduate and professional schools and an understanding of the excitement and path for a career in creating new knowledge.
