SBRP - NIH Supported Short Term Biomedical Research Training Program

We are pleased to announce our NIH Supported Short Term Biomedical Research Training Program (SBRP) for Early-Branch students (GY2021 cohort). The program will pay approximately $4,000 dollars as a stipend for 8 weeks of research. This program replaces the summer research program previously offered after M1 year. To participate in the program, you must take a research elective as an 8 week block in either Jan/Feb, Feb/Mar or Mar/Apr of 2020. Students must submit a hypothesis driven research proposal online (see below) that will be due on Oct 1, 2019. The mentor must be a University of Michigan faculty.  The proposal has a student and mentor section (see below). First, the student completes the proposal online which is then forwarded to the mentor who approves the proposal and completes their section. Once both sections are complete, the proposals will be reviewed by a selection committee. We are authorized to fund 32 positions from NIH funds but can fund additional students with meritorious applications at the $4,000-dollar level as funds permit.
