Subject: HST-Wellman Summer Institute for Biomedical Optics Description: Hosted at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine of Massachusetts General Hospital and the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology Program, the HST-Wellman Summer Institute for Biomedical Optics provides undergraduate student participants with research experience in the field of biomedical optics. A dozen labs offer multidisciplinary projects broadly focused on the development and applications of light-based techniques for imaging, diagnosis and therapies, as well as discovery of new bio-inspired engineering principles. This intensive program offers lectures, research experience, training in technical communication, academic and career guidance, as well as an opportunity to connect with other undergraduate students and peers with similar career interests. Eight undergraduates from all disciplines are accepted each year. Participants are required to attend the entire 10 weeks and must be US citizens or permanent residents. The program provides participants with housing in the Boston area, a $5,000 stipend, partial travel reimbursement for transportation to and from the Boston area, and a possible opportunity to present at an NSF conference. Underrepresented minority students and students from institutions with limited STEM research opportunities, who may otherwise find it difficult to gain research experience in cutting-edge biomedical optics, are encouraged to apply. Application requirements include an application form, official transcripts from undergraduate institutions attended, and two letters of recommendation. The application deadline is Saturday, January 11, 2020.
