This nine‐week program from June 7 to August 5, 2016 offers a chance to learn, explore, and gain hands‐on experience in a Children’s Hospital Medical Center research laboratory environment for 5 to 7 minority students each summer. Click here for a letter announcing the program that is sent out to all Cincinnati Area High Schools. Each BRIMS intern will be paired with a research mentor to pursue a 9-week full time basic science, or clinical biomedical research project during the summer. All interns will give a 5-minute Powerpoint presentation of their research project to the group and are encouraged to present a poster at the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Capstone poster competition at the end of the program.
In addition to participating in SURF activities, BRIMS interns participate in weekly networking luncheons and shadowing opportunities with minority faculty in several areas of the hospital from surgery to administration. Participants may earn up to $2,916 ($8.10/hr) based on the number of hours they work in the laboratory. The BRIMS program is sponsored by the Office of Academic Affairs and Career Development, and the Center for Clinical and Translational Science and Training at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
This program is open to high achieving graduating high school seniors and college freshmen from the Cincinnati tri-state area only. College students from other states who have outside funding (ie MARC awards) are also eligible to participate in the program. Please contact Dr. Cindy Bachurski directly about participating with outside funding.
