Stanford Institutes of Medicine Summer Research Program

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Stanford Institutes of Medicine Summer Research Program (SIMR) is an eight-week program in which high school students from diverse backgrounds are invited to perform basic research with Stanford faculty, postdoctoral fellows, students and researchers on a medically-oriented project. The goals of the program include increasing interest in biological sciences and medicine in high school students, helping students to understand how scientific research is performed, and increasing diversity of students and researchers in the sciences.

 

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS  

All three of the following requirements must be met (no exceptions):

1) Students must currently be juniors or seniors.

2) Students must also be 16 years old or older by the start of the program.

3)  Students must be living in the U.S. and must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents with a green card in order to apply.

Important Note:  Please read the MISSION link on the lefthand panel.  The selection process will heavily favor local (Bay Area) students. Please visit the FAQ for more information.  Also, students must be able to start the program on June 13, 2022.  

 

SUMMER 2022 UPDATE:

  • The current plans are to have an in-person program for the summer of 2022.  According to the Stanford policy in place during the spring/summer of 2022, there may be vaccine requirements, masking and testing requirements during the program.  More concrete information will be provided on April 15th when the accepted students are announced. Please DO NOT upload vaccination records onto the Slideroom application site when you are applying. There is a chance the program could be held virtually if the University does not allow in-person programs depending on the conditions at the time in the spring/summer of 2022.
