Summer Research Program

Annually, the Institute for Public Health at Washington University in St. Louis hosts a popular, informative and engaging Summer Research Program.

Application period is OPEN! Apply now:

The eight-week Summer Research Program enables students from any university to develop expertise in one of two tracks:

Public and Global Health Track

Aging and Neurological Diseases Track

The Summer Research Program is open to students who seek challenge, research and experience in one of the above two tracks, along with the opportunity to explore and grow academically in a diverse environment. Students may apply to one or both programs for which they qualify, but may only be accepted into one program.

The Summer Research Program runs between June-July each year.

The program is supported by the Institute for Public Health; the Global Health Center; Friedman Center for Aging; the Departments of Medicine, Molecular Biology, and Pediatrics at Washington University’s School of Medicine; the Children’s Discovery Institute of Washington University and St. Louis Children’s Hospital; and National Institutes of Health.
