Established in 2013 by Shelley and Joel Tauber, the Tauber Family Student The internship was inspired by the educational journey of their granddaughter, who furthered her studies in medical school, and is now a resident in pediatrics.
This salaried 10-week program gives undergraduate students the ability to dip their toes in and experience cutting-edge research. After being chosen through an application process, each Tauber Family Intern is paired up with a NeuroNetwork for Emerging Therapies researcher who will serve as their mentor. In addition to hands-on training in a variety of biomedical research techniques, with the help of their mentor, students develop their very own research projects.
Many past recipients have progressed to successful careers in graduate school, medical school, and other Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) careers.
