CHOP Research Institute Summer Scholars Program
The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Research Institute Summer Scholars Program (CRISSP) is a 10-week competitive summer internship program for undergraduate students interested in careers in the biomedical sciences. The internship is designed to provide students with theoretical knowledge, practical training in academic research, and critical exposure to pediatric-focused career trajectories under the direct mentorship of CHOP faculty. Full time immersion in a lab or research group allows interns to experience science and discovery first hand.
CRISSP offers opportunities in basic, clinical, behavioral, and translational research. In addition to completing an independent research project, interns learn basic techniques and gain exposure to how research is conducted under the direction of CHOP faculty. Interns present their independent research project at a commencement event open to the entire research community. Opportunities for clinical observation in designated areas of the Hospital will be provided for all students. A stipend will be provided. The program runs June 2 to August 8, 2014. Additional information is available on the website
CRISSP is a great opportunity for University of Pennsylvania students. Students with competitive grades and career goals consistent with a future in biomedical research are encouraged to apply. Applications are due January 31, 2014. Up to 16 students will be accepted.
