The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute is pleased to announce the return of The CHOP Research Institute Summer Scholars Program (CRISSP). CRISSP is a 10-week competitive summer internship program for undergraduate students interested in careers in the biomedical sciences. The internship is designed to provide students with theoretical knowledge, practical training in academic research, and critical exposure to pediatric-focused career trajectories under the direct mentorship of CHOP faculty. Full time immersion in a lab or research group allows interns to experience science and discovery first hand. A stipend will be provided. The program runs June 2 to August 8, 2014. Additional information is available on our website: http://www.research.chop.edu/programs/crissp/ CRISSP is a great opportunity for Villanova University students. Students with competitive grades and career goals consistent with a future in biomedical research are encouraged to apply. Applications will be open in November. Up to 25 students will be accepted.
