The Northwestern University Transplant Outcomes Research Collaborative (NUTORC) and Northwestern University Collaborative in Transplant-Related Immunology and Biomedical Engineering (NUCTRIBE) within the Comprehensive Transplant Center offer an unpaid summer immersion program to students who are interested in transplant research. During this experience students will:
- Develop & complete a research project with their mentor
- Gain basic understanding of transplantation through lectures, meetings, and research
- Learn to use PubMed and Endnote
- Present summer research project at Poster Walk
All students participate in the weekly NUTORC meetings and the focus group specific meetings of their research topics. There will be approximately 3-4 lectures weekly from transplant clinicians on topics relevant to transplantation.
With proper approval, the undergraduate & medical students students will have the additional opportunity to observe a surgery, an outpatient clinic and a multi-disciplinary morning rounds conference.
We encourage the application of students at High School, College, Medical School levels and from different institutions to apply. We also encourage minority and disabled students to apply.
