Our summer fellowship program offers rising second-year medical students the chance to conduct mentored, NIH-funded research in a faculty lab at UB or Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. Test your interest in research or get a head start on your long-term plans.
You will design and carry out independent research in infectious diseases, microbiology and/or immunology under the guidance of our world-renowned faculty. Your mentor will work with you to develop a project abstract before the fellowship begins and help you see your goals to completion.
The fellowship application will ask you to list three mentors with whom you wish to work, and we will make every effort to match you with a mentor based on your interests.
Weekly seminars expose you to the topics and people at the cutting edge of infectious disease, microbiology and immunology research. Laboratory practical sessions, training in research methods and ethics, and opportunities to present your work give you the fundamentals to continue in a successful research career.
