Description: 

The program provides trainees with extensive contact with research mentors, their staffs of investigators and supporting personnel who guide the research project and serve as role models and provide career direction. Faculty members are either from the Department of Pediatrics or partners who are engaged in research relevant to childhood diseases and developmental biology.

Student trainees participate in research seminars where emphasis is placed on scientific material appropriate to their level of understanding. Seminars are informative sessions providing participants with an overview of the types of research, career options in research and discussions involving the individual career paths of successful investigators.

The primary focus of the Summer Program is to connect outstanding students with research opportunities and research mentorship. In addition, the program will try to accommodate students who are interested in limited clinical shadowing experiences, as time and availability allows. However, clinical shadowing is not a specific mission of the program and shadowing is not a guaranteed element of each studentís experience.
