2016 Student Summer Fellowship – Lupus Foundation of Minnesota: App Deadline Feb. 1st

The Lupus Foundation of Minnesota (LFM) provides undergraduates interested in basic or clinical research an opportunity to work with an established faculty researcher at various institutes, including the University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic.

Since 1981, LFM has provided college students with the unique opportunity to partner with accomplished researchers at local institutions working on lupus-related autoimmune research. Fellows execute experiments, perform literature searches and conduct corresponding research in tandem with the principal investigator.

The goal of the project is to inspire a new generation of researchers committed to discovering better treatments and a cure. To date, support from individual donors has provided 118 fellows with the opportunity to work on vital research efforts aimed at improved detection, treatment and a cure.

Fellowships typically begin in June and conclude in mid-August when the fellows complete a final report, which addresses the initial project proposal and research question, and they provide a brief public presentation of their research to program colleagues, LFM board members and staff , supporters, friends, and the public.
