Summer Research Program

The overall objective of the 8-12 week-long summer research training program is to provide 2nd or 3rd year veterinary students with the opportunity to acquire an appreciation for the roles and opportunities for veterinarians in biomedical research. The principal activity is the participation in cutting-edge biotechnology projects with an established DCM Faculty mentor. Research opportunities may be available for studying inflammatory bowel disease, colon cancer, vitamins A or D, innate immunity and lung diseases, aging, cancer metastasis, and the development and transformation of lymphocytes.

At the end of the rotation, students will give a 30-40 minute seminar on their research project.

Note: limited stipends (~$350.00/month)  are available for this program
