The goal of the program is to provide to provide underrepresented minority (URM) undergraduate students an opportunity to engage in basic, clinical and/or translational research projects during the summer at Seattle Children’s Research Institute under the mentorship of experienced researchers and principal investigators. Students will learn to use lab equipment (as applicable), meet with mentors and gain valuable research experience. Students will also attend career and professional training sessions on topics such as writing their Individual Development Plans, résumé writing, crafting an effective LinkedIn profile and more. The program will culminate with each intern publishing an abstract of their research project in the internship’s Program Report, and being invited to submit their abstract for a poster presentation at OTER’s annual Postdoc and Student Research Symposium (held every November).
