During the summer months, Maine Medical Center, through the Research Institute, provides college and pre-college students with an opportunity to receive an educational experience in biomedical science through the MMCRI Summer Student Research Program.
Ten undergraduate students and three Tufts Maine Track medical students participate in mentored, independent research projects either in our state-of-the-art research laboratories, or working with physicians to impact patient care or the outcome of treatment.
During the ten-week program, students attend a comprehensive course featuring topics including bioethics, animal use in biomedical science, and scientific presentation skills, and have the opportunity to attend lectures presented by distinguished guest scientists and faculty members.
