The Summer Student Research Program (SSRP) at Maine Medical Center Research Institute offers college students a unique opportunity to conduct educational research in diverse biomedical science fields during the summer months. Up to twelve students participate in mentored, independent research projects either in our state-of-the-art research laboratories, or working with physicians to impact patient care or the outcome of treatment.
During the ten-week program, students attend a comprehensive course featuring topics including bioethics, animal use in biomedical science, and scientific presentation skills, and have the opportunity to attend lectures presented by distinguished guest scientists and faculty members.
The stipend for the summer internships is $3,500. Students are responsible for their own transportation and housing.
