National Institute of
Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)Infectious Diseases and
Inflammatory Disorders Training Program
The Infectious Diseases and Inflammatory Disorders Training Program sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) is an innovative research program that provides an in-depth exposure to biomedical concepts, modern biomedical research areas, and an intensive, “hands-on”, well structured 12-week research experience. The NIAID program will match talented medical students with fully funded NIH research faculty mentors, and the program couples the daily research experience with an ongoing series of, summer research seminars, peer round table research discussions, oral presentations, and mentoring from outstanding UTMB faculty. Additionally, medical students will have the opportunity to choose basic, clinical, translational or behavioral research projects. The program’s goal is to encourage medical students to pursue a career in research in the areas of infectious diseases, inflammatory disorders, asthma and allergic responses, and gut/liver infections and cancer.Dates
The NIAID Program will be held on the campus of UTMB Galveston and will occur for 12 weeks during the months of May - August. Flexibility will be given to students concerning the begin and end dates of the research project. However, students must commit to a minimum of 8 weeks in order to receive a beneficial research experience.
