Please check here late 2013 for application instructions for summer program 2014.
The mission of the Outreach, Education and Training Program is to attract, train and grow students into researchers interested in solving problems related to HIV and other human disease.
The summer program is a 8-12 week research training program where each student works on a customized HIV-related research project in one of the Ragon research groups.
Besides the hands-on research experience students attend a weekly lunch hosted by one the faculty discussing their research program, evening immunology lectures (2 per week), lectures on oral and poster presentation and on fellowship writing. The student will also attend seminars and events attended by the student’s direct supervisor.
The program concludes with the submission of a written report, a poster session and oral presentations. Students usually start working between end of May and mid-June.
The program is intended for highly motivated high school, college and medical students with interest in immunology,virology, human disease and multiple experimental approaches (molecular biology and virology, biochemistry, cell biology and cellular immunology).
