The George Mason University Aspiring Scientists Summer Internship Program was established in 2007 by Dr. Lance Liotta, Dr. Emanuel Petricoin III, Dr. Virginia Espina, and Amy Adams to give high school and undergraduate students, who have an interest in STEM, access to real-world, hands-on research.
Students work one-on-one with faculty researchers at George Mason University and collaborating institutions using state-of-the-art technology to solve hypothesis driven questions in Biochemistry, Biodefense, Bioengineering, Bioinformatics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Cybersecurity, Earth Science, Environmental Science, Genomics, GeoInformation Science (GIS), Mathematical Modeling, Medicine, Nanotechnology, Neuroscience, Serious Game Design, Sports Medicine, Physics, and Proteomics.
As part of the 7-9 week full-time training, students:
Gain hands-on experience using cutting-edge sophisticated equipment and technologies,
Develop and exercise scientific writing and communication skills
Explore STEM career choices through discussion forums and meetings with role models
Develop and exercise creative skills, crucial to performing innovative research
Hard work often pays off with participants' names published in scientific journals and their work presented at scientific conferences.
Applications are available in the fall and are due January 31st.
