Subject: 2016 Regenerative Medicine Summer Internship Opportunities

The SRF Summer Scholars Program offers undergraduate students the opportunity
to conduct biomedical research to combat diseases of aging, such as cancer
and neurodegenerative diseases. Under the guidance of a scientific mentor,
each Summer Scholar is responsible for his or her own research project in
such exciting areas as genetic engineering and stem cell research. The Summer
Scholars Program emphasizes development of both laboratory and communication
skills to develop well-rounded scientists who can work equally well with
other scientists or the general public. Students participating in the program
will hone their writing skills via periodic reports, which are designed to
emulate text scientists commonly must produce. Additionally, a poster
presentation at a SRF-sponsored conference at the end of the summer will
provide students with an opportunity to put all of their newly developed
communication skills into practice when they present their results to
scientists from other research institutions.

Paid positions are available at such world-renowned research institutions as:
Buck Institute for Research on Aging
Harvard School of Medicine
Sanford-Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute
Scripps Research Institute
SRF Research Center
Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine

The online application and full descriptions of each research project can be
found at Applications will be accepted
until 12 pm PST February 1, 2016. A downloadable program flyer is available
at the same address. Please share the flyer and/or email with your students
or other departments you think would be interested in this research
opportunity. A low resolution version that is more amenable to posting can be
provided as well.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide in advertising our summer
internship program. If you have any questions about the program, please feel
