The undergraduate Translational Research Immersion Program (TRIP) provides students at participating institutions experiential learning opportunities in the field of clinical and translational research (CTR). Partnering institutions include Bryn Mawr College, Haverford College, Howard University, Florida A&M University, Franklin & Marshall College, Lincoln University, Morehouse College, Spelman College, Swarthmore College, University of Pennsylvania, University of Puerto Rico, and Xavier University of Louisiana. The program is sponsored by the NIH Clinical and Translational Sciences Award (CTSA) and ITMAT. Deadline to apply is February 4, 2022.
This program includes a 10-week summer research experience with the potential for extended year-round research opportunities that can occur remotely or in person. The 10-week summer research experience starts May 24, 2022 and ends July 29, 2022. The program provides on-campus housing and a stipend of $4,800.
In addition, students will have access to:
- A year-round virtual Translational Research Seminar Series
- Dual mentorship opportunities
- Community building activities with predoctoral and postdoctoral students at Penn
The additional components of this program will create an opportunity for undergraduates to engage in CTR beyond the 10 weeks and throughout their remaining undergraduate years.
