The Underrepresented Student Internship Program provides the opportunity for undergraduate students to receive mentorship and training from NIH Human Biomolecular Atlas Program (HuBMAP) labs over the summer.

Apply for an immersive research experience at one of the HuBMAP labs working at the cutting edge of single cell biology on experimental or computational projects and gain valuable research experience. This program is ideal for students in STEM fields, especially those interested in biology, data science, and medicine.

Learn valuable new skills across the scientific research spectrum and gain experience in an educational lab environment. During the internship program, students will conduct cutting-edge research, greatly expanding their knowledge of biology and data analysis. Students will develop a variety of skills throughout the summer, preparing them for future research endeavors. These include:

  • Learning GitHub, Python, JavaScript, other coding languages - especially for those students that pursue a computational internship experience
  • Working with lab techniques and technologies, such as sample preparation, pipetting, and analysis - especially for those students that pursue an experimental lab experience
  • Developing knowledge of spatial transcriptomics, 3D imaging, visualization, and data analysis
  • Learning skills that are applicable to all sciences and even other fields, such as reading publications, giving scientific presentations, resume writing, and conducting journal reviews
