Summer Cardiovascular Research Internship Program (SCRIP)
From the SCRIP Website: Rice offers a unique opportunity for undergraduates to perform cutting-edge cardiovascular research ranging from fundamental science and translational medicine to community health. The SCRIP at Rice, administered by the Institute of Biosciences and Bioengineering (IBB), will recruit undergraduates from the greater Houston area to perform research in the departments of Bioengineering, Biosciences, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Chemistry, Computational and Applied Mathematics, Psychology, Sociology, and Statistics.
The interns will interact with faculty sponsors and their research groups to solve significant problems of relevance to heart disease and stroke patients. The interns will also participate in professional development activities designed to improve scientific communication skills and the recruitment of students into graduate programs. SCRIP will provide a group of young cardiovascular investigators with the foundation and inspiration to translate their research experiences into future high-impact endeavors that enhance the quality of life for persons afflicted with cardiovascular diseases.
