Subject: HST-Wellman Summer Institute for Biomedical Optics

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

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

The application deadline is Saturday, January 11, 2020.
