Summertime is often associated with pools, sunshine and vacations. Here at the Indiana CTSI, we also want summer to be synonymous with research. That’s why, this month we are spotlighting two important summer research opportunities – sponsored by the Indiana CTSI – that are currently underway.
The first is our Project SEED & STEM research opportunities for high school students. It is also the top story in this month’s e-newsletter. The program is so popular, every year we have to turn students away. Sharing the long and lasting legacy these programs have created, will hopefully encourage even more people to get involved and donate to the Indiana CTSI’s SEED/STEM efforts which encourage high school students to pursue careers as scientists.
For rising second year medical students at all nine Indiana University School of Medicine campuses, we offer the IMPRS program which stands for Indiana University Medical Student Program for Research and Scholarship. The program provides hands-on experiences in translational, clinical, and health outcomes research, as well as community health education, during the summer break.
Finally, looking ahead to fall, please mark your calendars for September 24th and plan to join the Indiana CTSI annual meeting, which will include much more information about all of the important research happening at the Indiana CTSI and how it is helping empower a healthier Indiana.
