Summer Research Opportunity at Ohio State University

Did you know that The Ohio State University Medical Center has a Summer Program for biomedical students interested in obtaining a dual MD/PhD upon graduation?

Visit http://go.osu.edu/success to learn more about this program. Applications for the SUCCESS Program are available online now through January 31st!

The SUCCESS Program will enable students to participate in a 9 week, fullyfunded, enriching research experience hosted by the Medical Scientist Training Program. While taking part in this program, students will take valuable professional development courses and learn from engaged mentors; all while working in state-of-the-art research facilities. 

The SUCCESS program seeks to identify outstanding students interested in the biomedical sciences with the goal of pursuing graduate education (MD/PhD or PhD). The program seeks to enhance and foster diversity in graduate study in the biomedical and biological sciences as reflected in culture, class, race, ethnicity, background, work, and life experiences. The program especially encourages applications from African Americans, Hispanic/Latino Americans, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, and others whose backgrounds and experiences would bring diversity to the field.

In order to be considered for SUCCESS, students must be graduating in the year of 2015 or 2016, enrolled in a U.S. 4 year undergraduate institution, and be an American citizen or permanent resident.


Research Opportunity: Studies of variation in blood groups and coagulaion

Con­tact Name: Jill Johnsen

Con­tact Email: jjohnsen[at]uw.edu

Depart­ment: Med­i­c­i­ne


The Johnsen laboratory studies the role of variation of clotting factors, blood groups, and blood cell traits in disease, and the biological impact of differences between these factors in terms of bleeding diseases, blood clotting, pregnancy complications, and susceptibility to infection.

The work in Dr. Johnsen’s lab has significance in blood clotting disorders that are inherited, such as von Willebrand disease and familial platelet disorders, and acquired blood-related diseases, including pregnancy-related vascular complications.

Lab home pages:


A strong interest in exploring a career in research in the biological/biomedical sciences, completion of 2 years of undergraduate coursework in a relevant major and at least one laboratory course in the life sciences or chemistry.
