The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) is accepting applications for Intramural NIAID Research Opportunities (INRO). INRO connects talented students from populations underrepresented in the biomedical sciences with training opportunities in immunology, infectious diseases, and allergies. College seniors, doctoral candidates, or medical students can apply to learn about NIAID’s global health research, explore the NIH campus, network with current trainees, and interview with principle investigators for potential positions in their labs. This all-expenses-paid program will take place in February in Bethesda, MD. Applications open on September 1 and must be submitted by October 15.
90% of all AI/AN students attend regular public schools and about 8% attend schools administered by the Bureau of Indian Affairs
