Undergraduate Research Programs
Undergraduate summer research at Stanford CVI is supported by the American Heart Association, The National Institutes of Health, and the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute (CVI). The program is 10 weeks long and is designed to train students enrolled in a 4-year undergraduate program majoring in a scientific discipline in cardiovascular research in the laboratories of CVI-affiliated faculty members.
Each student will receive a set stipend covering living costs. The program dates will be between June 8, 2020, and August 14, 2020. The dates are slightly flexible, but we require that the student must work in the assigned Stanford labs between June and August. This will allow the CVI to plan events fostering student interactions including a visit to local Silicon Valley biotech company, meeting with a panel of faculty mentors and peers, a possible boat ride and deep-sea fishing of the Pacific Coast, and to make oral/poster presentations of their research on a designated day.
Potential mentors for these summer sessions should be CVI-member faculty (note that many of these researchers have not taken part in our program previously). You should ideally reach out and contact your preferred mentor to see if they are available for this summer session, mentioning that you are applying to CVI’s Undergraduate Summer Research program, and refer them to our website.
Former mentors and active mentors include:
