Established in 2013 by Shelley and Joel Tauber, the Tauber Family Student Internship is an annual 10-week paid summer program. Approximately three undergraduate students are chosen through an application process and assigned to a specific NeuroNetwork for Emerging Therapies scientist, with whom they will develop a research project. At the culmination of the internship, each student presents their findings to the faculty and laboratory staff. Many of the past recipients, who are listed below, have progressed to successful careers in graduate or medical school.
Applications for the Tauber Family Internship Program are accepted each February through mid-March. Interns receive a stipend for the 40 hours per week that they spend in the laboratory.
