Program information: Program dates are June 4 through August 10, 2018. During the program, Nemours clinical and research faculty will guide students through the process of formulating and testing hypotheses, interpreting data, and communicating results while working on active research projects.  Available projects vary each year and range from lab-based, translational, and clinical to epidemiologic in focus. Training is provided on human subjects protection, animal welfare, responsible conduct of research, and research ethics.  Program activities include multiple enrichment activities including a student-focused seminar series, journal clubs, and multiple opportunities for shadowing and engagement in other educational opportunities.  All students present their research project and findings to the community via poster sessions and oral presentations.
