Welcome 2022 summer interns!

This week we welcomed our 2022 OccHealthSci undergraduate summer interns. We are thrilled to bring back our summer interns for an in-person program. Yesterday, we hosted an intern welcome on campus to kick things off.

The OccHealthSci Summer Internship program began in 1995.  Our program is designed to introduce undergraduate students to biomedical and occupational health research.  We provide unique research opportunities across various basic and applied research areas. Whether studying molecules, cells, organ systems, non-human organisms, or gathering data in the community, students will gain valuable experience conducting a specific project aligned with their host faculty member’s research.

Over the summer, interns conduct a research project in their host faculty member’s laboratory. Our 3-month paid internship program begins in June and concludes in mid-to-late August with interns presenting their work at a poster session. We typically receive 100-145 applicants each summer.

The program is directed by Saurabh Thosar, Ph.D., and coordinated by Alisa Mukai, B.A. We look forward to hosting the intern poster session in person in August. Stay tuned for more updates throughout the summer. We will be inviting interns to write guest blogs.

Congrats 2022 internship class!
