Internship: Regenerative Medicine
SENS Research Foundation, various locations
paid positions, summer 2018


The SENS Research Foundation Summer Scholars Program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct biomedical research to combat diseases of aging, such as cancer and Parkinson’s disease. Under the guidance of a scientific mentor, each Summer Scholar is responsible for his or her own research project in such areas as genetic engineering and stem cell research. The Program emphasizes development of both laboratory and communication skills to develop well-rounded future scientists, healthcare professionals, and policy makers. Students participating in the program will hone their writing skills via writing assignments, which are designed to emulate text scientists commonly must produce. At the end of the summer, students will have the opportunity to put all of their newly developed communication skills into practice at a student symposium. Paid positions are available at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, Harvard Medical School, the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine, the SRF Research Center, The Scripps Research Institute, the University of California at Berkeley, and the University of Oxford.
