Medical Student Summer Research Program
Students learn laboratory and clinical research techniques used in medical research and attend seminars. In addition, they receive training in presentation skills, including how to prepare and present their research results and how to write an abstract. All of the summer interns present their research results at the annual Medical Student Research Day which is routinely held in the fall semester.
This program has succeeded in providing over 300 students with a meaningful research experience. After completing their internship, many student interns present their data at medical or scientific conferences, or have their research published in medical or scientific journals.
This program is funded by the LSU School of Medicine, Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center, New Orleans BioInnovation Center, and the National Institutes of Health (NIDDK and NIAAA).
Congratulations to all the Medical Students who participated in this years Summer Research Program.
