The Ivy Neurological Sciences Internship Program at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) provides students with the lab skills and experience they need to build a career that improves outcomes for patients suffering from brain tumors and neurological disease.
In conjunction with their work on authentic research projects in the laboratory, attendance at lab presentations and one-on-one scientific mentorship, Ivy Scholars receive professional development training and opportunities to better understand the clinical implications of their work. Interns receive training on the laboratory to clinic pipeline, scientific writing, presentation skills, professional etiquette, and poster presentations.
Each year, the program includes:
- 2 high school students, full-time, summer
- 2 undergraduate students, part-time, academic year
- 1 aspiring medical school student, full-time, academic year
TGen faculty select candidates to be considered for the Ivy Neurological Sciences Internship Program from the Helios Scholars at TGen applicant pool, or through this application program. Current high school students are considered for the following summer, and successful undergraduate students continue their Ivy internship during the academic year after completing the Helios Scholars program.
TGen separately recruits for the aspiring medical school student position, targeting pre-medical school students motivated to incorporate research into their clinical practice and to better understand the important connections between research and patient outcomes in the clinic.
