The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (Indiana CTSI), in collaboration with Ivy Tech Community College, is launching a new program focused on providing immersive research experiences for Ivy Tech learners. The program provides students with the opportunity to gain hands-on research experience in a laboratory-based research project or within a CTSI research core facility designed to increase their awareness of and interest in translational research to accelerate the pace of taking medicine from the “bench to the bedside.”
Accepted students are matched with a research experience in either an individual lab or core facility. Students will be placed at the campus that is nearest their home Ivy Tech campus:
The program is currently accepting applications for two different cohorts:
- Students will engage in immersion experiences during the 2024 summer (tentative program will run from June 3 – July 24, 2024). Learners will conduct research in a laboratory for ~35 hours per week. Participants in this program will be encouraged to limit classes and other work obligations as the internship is considered equivalent to a full-time job (typically Monday-Friday, ~8 hours a day).
- Students will engage in immersion experience during the 2024-2025 academic year. Learners will conduct research in a laboratory or core research facility for ~10 hours per week over the academic year.
The program plans to accept up to ~8-12 students for summer 2024 program and ~10-14 students for the 2024-2025 academic year program.
Application deadline is 5:00pm on April 15, 2024:
