2.  The University of Alabama – Birmingham offers 3 Summer Undergraduate Research Opportunities.  The deadline for all of them is February 15, 2018. 

 

As the deadline draws near I’d like to remind you of three exciting opportunities for your undergraduate students - the Summer in Biomedical Sciences (SIBS) Undergraduate Research Program, the Preparation for Graduate and Medical Education (PARAdiGM) and Kidney Undergraduate Research Program (KURE). These programs introduce outstanding undergraduates to the exciting career options of being a scientific investigator while also being a practicing physician. Eligible students may apply to all programs.

 

These eight week programs are held concurrently from May 31 – July 27, 2018. Students will receive stipends and free on-campus housing but will be responsible for their own meals, for travel to and from Birmingham, and other expenses. 

 

Students will be introduced to the concept of scientific research, principles of scientific experimentation, the proper methods of data analysis, the interpretation, presentation, and translational applications of research results, and to clinicians who practice at academic medical centers.

 

Applications must be submitted online and the deadline is February 15, 2018.

 

Summer in Biomedical Sciences (SIBS) Undergraduate Research Program http://www.uab.edu/medicine/sibs/

Our goal in offering this fellowship is to give talented undergraduate students the opportunity to experience the challenges and rewards of intensive, hypothesis-drive laboratory research. This experience should help students make well informed decisions about future career plans.  Previous research experience is not required. We especially welcome applications from students who are interested in research as a potential career, including students interested in PhD and MD/PhD programs. We accept fifteen students per summer into this program. We expect applicants to SIBS to have completed at least their sophomore year of undergraduate coursework. We anticipate that successful candidates will typically demonstrate grade point averages of 3.0 (“B”) or higher, especially in science, math, and related areas. 

 

Preparation for Graduate and Medical Education (PARAdiGM) http://www.uab.edu/medicine/paradigm/

The PARAdiGM program focuses on undergraduates from diverse and underrepresented minority backgrounds, and offers the opportunity to participate in the program for two summers. In addition to working in the laboratory of a faculty mentor with an actively funded biomedical research program, PARAdiGM participants will learn about careers in academic medical centers (AMCs) by shadowing clinician-investigators in their clinics, as well as on in-patient rounds. At the end of the first summer in the program, the students will write an abstract and participate in both a local and national poster presentation of their research results. The students will also receive instruction in essay writing, MCAT preparation, and critical career skills. The ultimate goal of the program is to provide undergraduate students with an understanding and appreciation of the biomedical research process so as to encourage them to pursue careers studying patients and their diseases after further postgraduate training in graduate and medical education. Previous research experience is not required in order to apply.  The PARAdiGM program is especially useful for students who do not have local access to biomedical research and/or academic physician-scientist role models. 

 

Kidney Undergraduate Research Program (KURE) https://www.uab.edu/medicine/nephrology/research/cardio-renal-physiology-and-medicine/kure (newly added)

The KURE participants engage in guided kidney-related research with a mentor and attend a variety of seminars and workshops over the course of the 8 week program.  Aside from time in the lab students will have professional development sessions and the opportunity to shadow some of our physicians in clinic.  The KURE oral symposium, held at the close of the summer session is where students present their summer research.

 

You can learn more about SIBS, PARAdiGM and KURE at our websites or by contacting me at rlorenz@uabmc.edu

8.  Leading with empathy:  The transformative influence of a doctor who hasn’t forgotten his past.  (Feature article from the Winter 2017-18 issue of Outlook Magazine, a publication of the Washington University School of Medicine in Sat. Louis. 

https://outlook.wustl.edu/leading-with-empathy/

From the introduction:

Will Ross knows he should be dead. Before his teen years, he had been beaten and bloodied countless times and stabbed in the arm. He had witnessed an execution-style murder and had watched riots burn his community.

He had hidden in his house to avoid gangs. Indoors, he often buried himself in books to escape the alcohol-fueled fighting between his mother and her boyfriends.

“We were the poorest of the poor,” Ross said. “However, my experiences with violence were not unique. Most of the kids I knew growing up are dead or in jail. It is not hyperbole to say I should be dead.”

Now an esteemed nephrologist at the School of Medicine, Ross, MD, MPH, has achieved a level of success that he had never imagined as a boy scrounging for food and wearing ill-fitting hand-me-downs and fearing that rats would crawl over him in his sleep.

 

 

9.  The Duquesne University (Pittsburgh, PA) offers two undergraduate summer research programs.  

The Duquesne University (Pittsburgh, PA) Pain Undergraduate Research Experience (PURE) and Neurodegenerative Undergraduate Research Experience (NURE) summer programs were awarded an NIH R25 and I am looking to you for help in spreading the word about these programs and letting students know they can apply. Applications are due February 15th 2018.

Each program is a 10 week summer research experience where students will be working with Duquesne faculty on research projects in chemistry, biology, pharmacology, pharmaceutics, medicinal chemistry, natural products chemistry, nursing, speech language pathology, biostatistics, and other related fields. The programs include standard summer research components like ethics and professional development seminars but will also include interactions with clinician scientists and patients to show students the application side of their research. No research experience is necessary to apply. 

Please pass the attached flyer and information along to anyone you think might be interested or who can help get the word out to the next generation of pain and neurodegenerative scientists!!

Student researchers will receive $4400 and free housing during the 10 week program. We are committed to creating an open, interactive, and diverse cohort of scientists so we are interested in applicants from a variety of backgrounds, scientific disciplines, and geographic locations.

Any questions can be directed to myself or any of the other three program coordinators.

Thanks for your help,
