Regenerative Medicine

Biomedical Engineering, Biological Sciences, and Animal Science


Central to preparing students for careers in regenerative medicine is a rigorous internship at a company or academic laboratory focused on Regenerative Medicine and/or Stem Cell Research. The Internship will occur over ten months (Aug 15 - June 15) at one of our partner institutions. The Internship Project(s) will be designed to allow the students to progress from supervised to independent work, with the goal of collecting results of a publishable volume and quality. The Internship will culminate with a written report and oral presentation of the Internship Project, and an evaluation by the Intern’s Supervisor. Overall, the Internship will provide trainees the opportunity to master their laboratory skills, and develop their critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills.
