Delaware INBRE accepting Summer Scholars program applications
Delaware INBRE is accepting applications for its 2017 Summer Scholars program, which provides undergraduate biomedical research opportunities across the state.
The 11-week program offers rising sophomore, juniors and seniors the chance to do mentored research at one of the six Delaware INBRE partner institutions: the University of Delaware, Delaware State University, Wesley College, Delaware Technical Community College, Christiana Care Health System and Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. Students are paid for their participation in the program.
Applications are available here. They are due March 1, and students will be notified by April 5 if they are selected.
INBRE stands for the IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence. It is funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences. One of the goals of Delaware INBRE is to build research capacity in the state, in part by increasing the number of biomedical researchers.
INBRE Summer Scholar Michael Hoffman spent last summer working with one of the newest pieces of equipment found on campus. He and fellow undergrad Susanna Trost used the functional near-infrared spectroscopy brain imaging equipment – fNIRS for short – for a project with mentor, Anjana Bhat, associate professor in the Department of Physical Therapy and part of the Move to Learn Innovation Lab in the STAR Health Sciences Complex.
