Summer Research Application Directions for NIDDK T35 Medical Student Research Program (MSSRP)
The MSSRP is an opportunity for students to perform 8 weeks of summer research (can be M1 summer or M2 summer) focused on the NIDDK mission to support basic, translational, and clinical research across a broad spectrum of research topics and serious, chronic diseases and conditions related to the Institute's mission. The research areas are focused on Diabetes, Digestive disease and Nutrition, Endocrine Disease and Metabolic Disease, Hematologic disease, Kidney Disease, and Liver Disease.
The MSSRP includes 15 hrs. classroom instruction on Responsible Conduct of Research, a 3-day-short course on NIDDK-focused research methods and advanced techniques and weekly summer journal clubs. The stipend will be $3,896 for the 8 weeks of research. Click here for due dates and more information.
To apply, fill out the Google form.
Summer Research Elective
Students who are doing summer research this year will now have the opportunity to have the activity recorded on their transcript. The elective, Summer Research Elective, will be posted on the transcript as a zero-credit course. In order to have the elective posted on your transcript, please fill out this Google form. At the end of the summer, the Office of Medical Student Research (OMSR) will confirm that research was completed and send a final grade to the registrar (either Achieves or Exceeds Expectations or Unsatisfactory). See the attached document for the full description and requirements.
The student will work closely with a mentor to perform basic science, clinical or translational research for an 8 week period usually between M1 and M2 years. At the conclusion of your Summer Research, it will be recorded on your transcripts for 0 credits. At the end of the summer research, the students will submit a 1-2 page summary. The summary will include: the title of the project, goal/objective or hypothesis tested, methods used and discussion of data analysis and conclusions of the study. The MSRO will review and grade each summary and provide a list of students to the registrar that have successfully completed the summer research elective and met expectations.
