We are looking for students with a passion to improve global health in the 21st century through a research career in allergy, immunology, or infectious diseases.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), one of the largest Institutes at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is seeking applicants for its Intramural NIAID Research Opportunities (INRO) program, which provides an invaluable opportunity for students with strong academic standing who are from populations underrepresented in biomedical research.
Candidates who are college-level seniors, medical school students, or doctoral candidates, and from a population underrepresented in the biomedical sciences are eligible.
During the 4-day program, students will hear lectures from world-renowned scientists and interview for potential research training positions at the Institute’s Maryland and Montana laboratories. This year’s program marks 10 years of INRO and takes place in Bethesda, MD, on the NIH campus, February 6–9, 2012. Students’ expenses for travel, hotel accommodations, and meals will be paid.
You can help us find the best and brightest applicants for INRO 2011 by doing the following:
Applications will be accepted from August 15 through October 15, 2011. Interested students can apply online through the program’s Web site.
Let’s work together to help students fulfill their educational and professional goals. I thank you for your consideration.
