NSURP offers opportunities consisting of both basic and applied (clinical)
biomedical research projects.

The Nemours Office of Health Equity and Inclusion (OHEI) is accepting
applications for 6 funded summer Research Scholar positions through their
Health Equities Summer Research Program (HESSP). The focus of all of these
research projects is health disparities. Most are epidemiologic in nature.

Nemours research faculty will guide students through the process of
formulating and testing hypotheses, interpreting data, and communicating
results.  Training will be provided on human subjects protection and animal
