Catalog of Biomedical Research Internships

Biomedical research is the broad area of science that looks for ways to prevent and treat diseases that cause illness and death in people and in animals. This general field of research includes many areas of both the life and physical sciences. Utilizing biotechnology techniques, biomedical researchers study biological processes and diseases with the ultimate goal of developing effective treatments and cures. Biomedical research is an evolutionary process requiring careful experimentation by many scientists, including biologists and chemists. Discovery of new medicines and therapies requires careful scientific experimentation, development, and evaluation. -New Jersey Association for Biomedical Research

If you want to see if biomedical research is a possible career path for you, our friends at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center have shared a resource they developed, which is a catalog of biomedical research internships offered nationwide for high school, undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, graduate, and first-year medical students.  You can check it out online here.

2018 Fred Hutch Summer Undergraduate Research Program

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch) hosts a summer internship that is designed to provide biomedical research experience and mentorship for undergraduate students of rising senior status.

About the Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP)

The SURP is an intensive, 9-week internship designed to provide research experience and mentorship for rising-senior undergraduate students who are interested in biomedical research.  Under the guidance of a faculty mentor, students will:

Chellis House Film Series: The Business of Being Born

Did you know that the US currently has one of the highest infant mortality rates among industrialized nations? Though some may find this to be shocking given the wealth of our nation and available technology, this issue is among several concerns about birth in the US that Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein set out to explore in their documentary, The Business of Being Born.

This documentary is about empowering women to realize the tremendous and natural capabilities of their own bodies without intervention. All women deserve the right to make informed decisions about their childbirth experience. Whether they choose to birth at home, in a birth center or at the hospital, they are entitled to the right to be educated, empowered and supported in the process.

Lake and Epstein have created a powerful film that boldly personifies this mission through real life accounts, professional commentary, and raw footage.

Wednesday, November 8, 7:00 pm at Chellis House

Pre-med students interested in family medicine or obstetrics,  students interested in midwifery or doula work, or any student wanting a glimpse into one aspect of the US medical system, this is an eye-opening documentary about the business of birth.
