Due to the COVID pandemic MMCRI made the difficult decision to suspend the 2020 Summer Student Research Program. Because students had already been selected for the 2020 program, we offered those students the opportunity to defer to Summer 2021. As a consequence of having our 2021 Summer Student Research Program funded spots filled by the 2020 selected students we will not have our usual application process for Summer 2021. We recognize this will be a disappointment to students interested in participating in a Summer 2021 program, but we welcome you to consider the program for Summer 2022. There may be individual mentors who have a project for a student to work on, and if those additional positions become available they will be posted on our careers website: mmcri.org/jobs
During the summer months Maine Medical Center Research Institute (MMCRI) provides undergraduates with an opportunity to receive an educational experience in biomedical science through the MMCRI Summer Student Research Program.
Research at MMCRI covers a broad area in biomedical science including vascular biology, stem cell biology, developmental biology, neurobiology, hematology, nephrology, tumor biology, and molecular genetics as well as outcomes research, vector-borne diseases, and clinical research.
The Summer Student program is ten weeks in duration, and students work 40 hours per week. Students are responsible for their own transportation and housing.
For information about the 2022 Summer Student Research Program, including program eligibility and program dates, please revisit this page in October 2021.
