"The chance to undertake research with practicing clinicians in a hospital setting is a significant opportunity for students, especially those who are interested both in advanced degrees in the health professions and in research," said Jeanette Miller, associate director of the Delaware INBRE program. "With the program at Christiana Care, Delaware INBRE can now support students all along the basic-translational-clinical research continuum."
Participants will present their research findings at a research symposium event at the end of the summer program. A link to the 2012 event is available online here.
The CCHS INBRE Summer Internship program is coordinated by Thomas Bauer, M.D., chief of thoracic surgery at the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center.
Interested students can begin the application process by registering through the online application system. The deadline for submitting applications to CCHS is March 15.
Students can also direct questions/inquiries to Tanya Dobrowolski at tDobrowolski@christianacare.org.
In addition to the CCHS opportunity, in summer 2013 the Delaware INBRE will support more than 30 undergraduate researchers in academic laboratories across the statewide network.
