To see a list of available host labs, please see the internship programs hosted by the individual Research Centers below:
Focusing on obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, investigators from this center aim to translate research findings into facilitating and improving the diagnosis, prevention and treatments for patients with cardiovascular and metabolic disorders.
With programs in basic, translational and clinical research, the Infectious and Immunologic Diseases Research Center takes an integrated approach to both infectious and immune-mediated diseases to improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
Focusing on bones, joints, muscles and the disorders that affect them, researchers from this center are involved in innovative studies to identify disease risk factors, enhance imaging techniques toward optimizing early detection and monitoring of musculoskeletal diseases, and employing nanotechnology to develop novel therapies and improve existing treatments.
Pursuing breakthroughs in the treatment, prediction and prevention of brain disorders such as multiple sclerosis, tumors, stroke, epilepsy, psychiatric illnesses and Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, research from this center has innovated and advanced treatments and therapies for diseases of the nervous system.
