Medical Student Summer Research Program

Overview

Welcome to the Summer Research Internship Program webpage! This program has succeeded in providing over 400 students with a meaningful research experience.
 

About the Program

The Summer Research Internship Program was founded by Dr. Paula Gregory in 2003.  Dr. Fern Tsien and Dr. Gregory have co-directed the program for 17 years to provide opportunities for medical students in basic science or clinical research. The 8-week summer program works to cultivate students’ interest in pursuing medical and research careers. Interns are matched with mentors in laboratories or clinics in New Orleans (LSUHSC-New Orleans campus, Stanley S. Scott Cancer, University Medical Center, or Children’s Hospital of New Orleans), and throughout the state (e.g., Our Lady of the Lake in Baton Rouge).

Students learn laboratory and clinical research techniques used in medical research. Required seminars are on topics such as responsible conduct in research and professional development, 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 Symposium which is routinely held in the fall semester.

After completing their summer internship, many student interns present their data at medical or scientific conferences, or have their research published in medical or scientific journals. Those students who wish to continue working on their summer research project throughout their academic education may apply to the Honors Program. The Honors Program allows students additional time to pursue their research goals, have their Honors status included in their transcript, write a manuscript, and to graduate with "Honors in Research" (Honors Program applications are due on August 2021).

This program is funded by the LSU School of Medicine for research in the basic and clinical sciences, the National Institutes of Health's National Cancer Institute (NIH-NCI) for research on cancer health disparities, and the National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) for research on alcohol abuse. 

 

Applications for the Summer Research Internship Program are due by 5:00pm on February 1st, 2021

 

**DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) PANDEMIC, START DATE AND PROGRAM EXPECTATIONS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. WE ENCOURAGE PROJECTS THAT CAN BE DONE REMOTELY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE TO LIMIT THE TIME SPENT ON CAMPUS. PLEASE REFER TO THE 2020 MEDICAL STUDENT RESEARCH VIRTUAL POSTER SYMPOSIUM LINK BELOW FOR PROJECT IDEAS.
