BME Student, Jennifer Mann, Accepts NIH Internship
Jennifer Mann, a junior majoring in Biomedical Engineering, has been accepted to the National Institutes of Health Biomedical Engineering Summer Internship Program (NIH BESIP).
Jennifer Mann, a junior at Worcester Polytechnic Institute majoring in Biomedical Engineering, has been accepted to the National Institutes of Health Biomedical Engineering Summer Internship Program (NIH BESIP). The NIBIB-sponsored Biomedical Engineering Summer Internship Program is a highly selective program for undergraduate biomedical engineering students who have completed their junior year. The program, led by Director, Dr. Robert Lutz, is scheduled from June 4 through August 11, 2012. Students spend 10 weeks in an intensive mentored research experience at the NIH, working on innovative projects towards the advancement of biomedical engineering. Undergraduates will be working under the mentorship of world-class scientists in NIH laboratories in Bethesda, Maryland.
Interns will have the opportunity to indicate preferences from a list of available NIH projects that involve areas of engineering or physical science. Students selected for the program will participate in group meetings, attend planned lectures and laboratory visits, and be encouraged to submit posters to the NIH Poster Day where interns from all disciplines present their projects.
Jenn is the second consecutive undergraduate at WPI to be accepted to the program. Sarah Mattessich (class of ’12) was selected and attended the NIH BESIP last summer. The Biomedical Engineering department is proud to see that undergraduates majoring in the field here at WPI are successfully competing for such impressive positions in highly recognized programs.
