The NCI Summer Student App, made possible through the leadership of Angela
Jones, in the office of Jonathan Wiest, and working with Blue Pane Studios, is now available from the iTunes store and Android Market.
Summer programs at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) provide an opportunity
to spend a summer working at the NIH side-by-side with some of the leading scientists
in the world, in an environment devoted exclusively to biomedical research. The
NIH consists of the 240-bed Mark O. Hatfield Clinical Research Center and more than
1200 laboratories/research projects located on the main campus in Bethesda, MD and
the surrounding area as well as in Baltimore and Frederick, MD; Research Triangle
Park, NC; Phoenix, AZ; Hamilton, MT; Framingham, MA; and Detroit, MI.
Awards cover a minimum of eight weeks, with students generally arriving at the NIH
in May or June. The NIH Institutes and the Office of Intramural Training & Education
sponsor a wide range of summer activities including lectures featuring distinguished
NIH investigators, career/professional development workshops, and Summer Poster
