GHSU Summer Programs

Summer STAR (Student Training And Research) Program
The Summer STAR (Student Training And Research) program at the Medical College of Georgia is designed to provide biomedical research experience for undergraduate students with a desire to pursue a graduate education in biomedical sciences.  This program provides opportunities for highly motivated and talented undergraduate students to develop skills as young scientists and to explore further their interest in biomedical research.  During the course of the ten-week program, students actively participate in a biomedical research project under the guidance of a MCG faculty member.  Applicants select the MCG faculty member that they would like to work with if accepted into the program.  Biomedical science research opportunities for Summer STAR participants are available in: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Cell Biology and Anatomy, Molecular Medicine, Pharmacology, Physiology, Vascular Biology, Oral Biology and The Georgia Prevention Institute.  In addition to working in the laboratory, students attend workshops, discussion groups and laboratory demonstrations that expose them to a broad range of biomedical research techniques, approaches and laboratory experiences available at the Medical College of Georgia.  The Summer STAR program provides excellent preparation for students planning to pursue a PhD or MD/PhD in the biomedical sciences.  The Summer 2005 STAR session will run from May 16 – July 22, 2005, and students are awarded a stipend of $3,500 (before taxes) for their participation in this ten- week session.  The STAR program has reserved a block of rooms for STAR participants in order to provide a safe, affordable and convenient on campus housing option (housing expenses are not covered by the STAR program).
