Pediatric Student Research Program (PSRP)

The PSRP was created with the purpose of introducing research to young investigators and to further their existing interest in research. The program includes seminars, mentored research and clinical shadowing experiences during the eight-week scenario, June through July. Selected participants work alongside experienced researchers. Opportunities range from bench to clinical to community-based research.

Students participate in lab meetings to gain insight into the infrastructure of the research operation and to witness the collaborative process of sharing techniques, new endeavors and successful investigative outcomes.
