Summer STUDENT Research Program
Program Description

What is the Objective of the program?
The objective of the CHORI Student Research Program is to provide basic and clinical research training opportunities for High School and Undergraduate students. The goal is to provide these research opportunities for individuals from dis-advantaged backgrounds, racial and ethnic minorities, and others who are underrepresented in this field (e.g., individuals with disabilities). The CHORI Program provides students with a research training experience to stimulate interest in pursuing a career in biomedical, clinical, basic and/or behavioral research in a friendly and nurturing environment.

What will students who are selected be involved with?

  • Be paired with a mentor who will guide them through a clinical or basic science research project
  • Participate in a research program based on a structured curriculum for 9 to 20 weeks (depending on the program (see Program Details)
  • Attend weekly seminars and meetings during the summer months with other CHORI research students
  • Present their research findings at a one-day Research Symposium on the last day of the program (typically the 2nd Friday in August).
