Undergraduate Opportunities to Perform Scientific Research

Through programs at our affiliated institutions under-represented undergraduate students have opportunities to participate in sleep and circadian rhythms research.   

Neurobiology Research Internships at Boston Children's Hospital are offered in the summer for students of Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC). This program is meant to introduce individuals to research—no prior experience in research is needed. Internships are paid, provide course credit through BHCC’s Learn & Earn Program, and center on conducting research in the F.M. Kirby Neurobiology Center and affiliated laboratories. Interns work closely with practicing neurobiologists, are given a customized curriculum in scientific and professional skills, become part of the Harvard research community, and gain access to resources from the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO). The internship program is generously supported by the F. M. Kirby Foundation, IBRO, BHCC, and Boston Children’s Hospital. The faculty contact for this is Michael Do ( michael.do@childrens.harvard.edu).
