Internships

DISCOVeR Team Members love to work with undergraduate, graduate, post doctoral, and medical students.

We value mentorship opportunities, as it one of the many ways that students and fellows are able to interact with and explore possible collaborations, which will ensure future success. We encourage participation in various mentorship/intership programs for students at all levels!
