OK-INBRE Call for Mentors for the Summer Undergraduate Research Program

The OK-INBRE Summer Undergraduate Research Program exposes promising students to the exciting world of research and acts as a mechanism for increasing the applicant pool for graduate programs in biomedical research at Oklahoma's comprehensive campuses.  

We are now seeking mentors for the summer of 2019.  Each selected student will receive a salary of $5,000 (subject to taxes) to pay for living expenses over the summer (May 20 - July 12, 2019). In addition, each Mentor's laboratory will receive $2,200 for supplies. Each student will present a scientific poster of their summer research project at the end of the program. The cost of preparing the poster is to be covered by the aforementioned $2,200 allocation for supplies.

If you are interested in serving as a faculty mentor, please complete the online application form located at https://okinbre.ouhsc.edu/Undergraduate-Research/Summer-Faculty-Mentors by February 5th, 2019. The short application will require you to upload a one-page description of your research including a brief description of the project envisioned for the summer student, and your current NIH-style Biographical Sketch (not exceeding five pages).  Applications from prospective faculty mentors at both the research-intensive institutions and Oklahoma regional universities are strongly encouraged.  Applications from current and former COBRE Investigators at OUHSC and OMRF are also strongly encouraged.
