The Lankenau Institute for Medical Research
Lankenau Institute for Medical Research (LIMR) offers volunteer positions for summer research internships to undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing careers in biomedical research, public health and medicine. Internships are for eight weeks and may be extended with the approval of the mentor.
LIMR encompasses a dynamic group of scientists conducting basic, translational, and clinical research in cardiovascular and autoimmune diseases, cancer and diabetes. LIMR’s investigators also perform patient and community-oriented research in public health. Selected students will have the opportunity to work side-by-side with a specific Principal Investigator and participate in a research project. Students will perform experiments and/or gather data and learn new concepts related to their field of study and basic principles of research methodologies.
The goal of our program is to ensure that students’ experiences at LIMR will enhance their interest in research and solidify their decision to pursue careers in biomedicine and public health. The internship program represents our continued commitment to the education and training of young adults who will be the scientists and caregivers of tomorrow.
