The Stuart B. Levy CIMAR Undergraduate Summer Internship in Science and Medicine
Soon Accepting Summer Applications for the June 3-August 9, 2024, internship period
The Stuart B. Levy Center for Integrated Management of Antimicrobial Resistance (Levy CIMAR) is a collaborative and cross-disciplinary initiative with a mission to deliver new and innovative solutions to combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR). By bringing Tufts Medical Center and Tufts University’s schools of Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, and Arts & Sciences (as well as members from Engineering, Nutrition, and Drug Development) under a single umbrella, the Levy CIMAR is uniquely poised to lead AMR research, drug discovery, patient care, and education.
Each summer, our Center offers financial support for a limited number of summer internships for undergraduate students. Undergraduate students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the biomedical sciences are strongly encouraged to apply.
The award is in the form of a scholarship totaling $4,000 for candidates to work on a basic science, clinical, or educational project with a focus on AMR for a period of 10 consecutive weeks from June 5-August 9, 2024. At the end of the internship period, students will be required to present their work to Levy CIMAR members (details to come).
We will accept applications for the Summer 2024 Scholarship starting in December 2023. Please check back for more information.
