The Summer Volunteer Program at the Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute

Volunteers are a welcome and important part of the Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute (ISCI) at the University of Miami School of Medicine. We are a growing scientific center at the Medical School and offer a rigorous and exciting summer program for college students who are interested in broadening their research skills and scientific knowledge.

We welcome enthusiastic and hard-working volunteers to partner with seasoned research scientists in our laboratories. Volunteer positions are available through the second week of June through the middle of August. Volunteers generally devote 15-30 hours per week with the scientist with whom they work, thereby providing an opportunity to learn the intellectual process as well as the hands on experience of research.

If you are interested in spending your summer learning about the advances in stem cell technology and performing cutting edge research, complete the application form for the Summer 2020 program.
