The UIC Honors College, in partnership with the UIC Department of Surgery and the Department of Bioengineering, is happy to announce a new Summer Research Program. The Summer Diabetes Research Program at UIC is a ten-week summer internship for undergraduates with a focus on diabetes research. Sponosored by the NIH NIDDK R25 training program, this program will pair students with researchers in diabetes-related projects, such as islet transplantation, islet physiology, tissue engineering, beta-cell proliferation, microfluidic and nanotechnology technology, biological imaging, microencapsulation, and many other topics. Students will also attend seminar-based lectures, conduct individual research, and experience a clinical component.
Students will be compensated with a $3,000 stipend over the course of the ten-week program.
The application is now available at http://www.honors.uic.edu/SDR/. The deadline for submission is January 15, 2017. The application includes essays, two letters of recommendation, and an official transcript.
