The Heart, Lung and Blood Summer Research Program is designed to engage 12 diverse undergraduates and 8 medical students in state-of-the art biomedical research in cardiovascular, pulmonary, hematological and sleep disorders research.
Students who belong to groups underrepresented in biomedical sciences are eligible to apply. In general, this includes students who are African American, Latino, Puerto Rican, Pacific Islanders, students from low-income families, or those with disabilities. Please note that you must be a US citizen or Permanent resident to participate.
Participants will enjoy weekly seminars that highlight research in these disciplines, as well as activities that encourage interaction among all students engaged in summer research.
The program will culminate in a poster session required for all undergraduates and non-CWRU medical students. CWRU medical students will present their work in the subsequent CWRU Lepow Day event.
After acceptance, participants will be matched with a faculty member whose research is of interest to the student (see Faculty Preceptors)). Only Faculty of Case Western Reserve University may serve as research mentors.
$1750 per month, minimum two months ($3500). Students who participate for longer periods will have additional pro-rated stipend support. We will provide up to $500 in travel expenses from your home to Cleveland (and back!). Some support toward dormitory housing (cost about $1800) may be available.
Your application consists of an online application, electronic letters of recommendation (the online application system will send requests to your recommenders - please be sure to have their name and email), and mailed transcripts. Medical student applicants should substitute a letter from your medical school confirming status as a current student in good standing in lieu of transcripts. Application deadline for undergraduates is February 15, 2017. Application deadline for medical students is March 1, 2017. Seniors who are graduating in May or June 2017 are not eligible for this program. Official transcripts or medical student status letters can be mailed to:
