Will open January 2016
Internships are open to college undergraduate science majors as well as high school seniors. During the summer, each student will spend eight weeks working in one of the Banner Research laboratories. The Institute's research focuses on diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, psychology and computational medical imaging. The student will be expected to commit 36-40 hours per week to the program. A stipend of $125/week will be given to the student upon their successful completion of the program. The overall aim is to give the students experience in biomedical research.
Training will include hands-on instruction in basic scientific techniques, experimental design and statistical analysis. Some interns will run imaging data analysis for PET data, MRI data or functional MRI data by using the latest imaging processing packages such as SPM, free surfer, etc.
The student will be required to undergo basic lab and chemical safety training, and attend weekly seminars given by the Banner Research scientists and participate in an intern symposia at the conclusion of the summer.
Some Interns will be located at the Banner Sun Health Research Institute while the others will be located at Banner Alzheimer's Institute.
