Through a supportive, mentored research experience in an established laboratory and through seminars and discussion groups on careers in science, it is hoped that veterinary students will gain an insight on career opportunities in biomedical research. Veterinary students in their first year of veterinary school are encouraged to apply. Programs are typically 10 to 12 weeks during the summer.
