Program Overview

The Summer Undergraduate Internship Program in Cambridge, MA (June-August) is a paid, 40-hour per week program for students enrolled at an accredited university. Interns work on their own project under the guidance of a NIBR researcher. Placement may be in a variety of laboratory settings focusing on specific disease areas, pathway discovery, or new technologies. In addition to performing research, interns participate in educational programs to enrich their experience. Interns attend and present at bi-weekly journal club meetings, while a drug discovery seminar series provides exposure to different aspects of pharmaceutical research, and a career panel series provides a glimpse of paths to and within the pharmaceutical industry. At the end of the summer, the interns formally present the results of their summer research at a campus-wide poster session.
