We encourage applications from students of all backgrounds, particularly those from underrepresented minority groups or disadvantaged backgrounds; with disabilities; or who attend small colleges. Currently, SUIP only accepts applications from U.S. citizens and permanent residents. We regret that we are unable to accept applications from international students at this time. In addition, graduating seniors are not eligible to participate, and preference is given to applicants who will have completed their sophomore or junior year.


The Summer Undergraduate Internship Program (SUIP) provides an intense research experience for students interested in the biomedical and biological sciences. Interns complete ten weeks of full-time laboratory research, attend research seminars, and receive career counseling from program faculty and administrators. The program seeks to encourage and prepared talented students to pursue careers in scholarly research.
