Undergraduate Research Opportunities - Cleveland Clinic

Students in the Honors and University Scholars programs are eligible to in participate in an undergraduate research experience at the Cleveland Clinic in Spring 2012

Students accepted into the program will be selected to work as undergraduate research assistants on a project directed by one of the researchers at the Cleveland Clinic's Lerner Research Institute in Spring 2012. They will spend the semester working in the lab and keep a journal record of their activity. They also will prepare a full-length report on their research after the project is complete. Participants will earn 8 hours of academic credit – these credits may be applied to a degree program in consultation with the relevant department.

Opportunities also exist to extend the research experience into Summer 2012.

Interested students can learn more about ongoing research projects at the Cleveland Clinic by visiting the Lerner Institute's web page:

Follow the link for Research Departments and Centers and the faculty pages within that, which will provide information on faculty members' research interests and activities.

Applications for the Spring 2012 program will be due in late October 2011.
