Category: Summer
Type: Research
Location: Boston Massachusetts
Deadline: Early January


The Summer Student Research Program (SSRP) of the Harvard Program in Neonatology (HPN) is administered by the Division of Newborn Medicine at Boston Children's Hospital. The SSRP provides undergraduate and medical school students with an intensive laboratory and clinical research experience under the guidance of faculty and fellow mentors. Some of the many topics within Neonatal Research our mentors focus on include nutrition, radiology, lung vascular biology, epigenetics of fetal growth, rare disease, epigenetic mechanisms, and more. Students who enroll in the program will be appropriately matched with mentors based on their research interests expressed in their personal statement.

The summer program experience includes:

  • an eight-week program of:
    • observation of newborn care in hospital nurseries, clinics, and NICUs
    • bench, clinical/translational, or epidemiological research
    • weekly tutorials
  • supervision and guidance provided by faculty and fellow mentors
