The Systems Biology Center New York (SBCNY) Undergraduate Research Program offers summer research fellowships to City University of New York (CUNY) undergraduates who are planning to pursue PhD or MD/PhD degree programs after graduation and who are interested in incorporating systems biology approaches into the research that they pursue.
The SBCNY Summer Undergraduate Research Program at Mount Sinai School of Medicine is a full-time 10-week research-intensive computational systems biology training program within laboratories of the Center. The fellowship provides a $4000 stipend for the research training period from June 4, 2012 to August 10, 2012. Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis based on academic achievement, research motivation and compatibility of long-term goals with interests of SBCNY.
