    During the summer months Maine Medical Center Research Institute (MMCRI) provides undergraduates with an opportunity to receive an educational experience in biomedical science through the MMCRI Summer Student Research Program.

    Research at MMCRI covers a broad area in biomedical science including vascular biology, stem cell biology, developmental biology, neurobiology, hematology, nephrology, tumor biology, and molecular genetics as well as outcomes research, vector-borne diseases, and clinical research.

    The Summer Student program is ten weeks in duration, and students work 40 hours per week. Students are responsible for their own transportation and housing.

    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.
