The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is looking for up to 25 research based interns, preferably with aspirations in the biomedical field, though all students could benefit from the experience in academic research skills. Please find the full details, link to apply, and flyer below. Applications open up in November.

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute is pleased to announce the return of The CHOP Research Institute Summer Scholars Program (CRISSP).  CRISSP is a 10-week competitive summer internship program for undergraduate students interested in careers in the biomedical sciences.  The internship is designed to provide students with theoretical knowledge, practical training in academic research, and critical exposure to pediatric-focused career trajectories under the direct mentorship of CHOP faculty.  Full time immersion in a lab or research group allows interns to experience science and discovery first hand.

 CRISSP offers opportunities in basic, clinical, behavioral, and translational research.  In addition to completing an independent research project, interns learn basic techniques and gain exposure to how research is conducted under the direction of CHOP faculty.  Interns present their independent research project at a commencement event open to the entire research community.  A stipend will be provided.  The program runs June 2 to August 8,2014.  Additional information is available on our website:

 We believe CRISSP is a great opportunity for Villanova University students.  Students with competitive grades and career goals consistent with a future in biomedical research are encouraged to apply. Applications will open in November. Up to 25 students will be accepted.
