High School Students

Openings for High School summer interns 

Rising seniors (completed 11th grade of high school) are welcome to apply for the summer internship program at MohanLab. Following 1-2 weeks of instruction and introduction to basic laboratory techniques, students undertake bench research under the guidance of a scientist or graduate student over a period of 8 weeks (June 3 rd to July 26 th 2024). At the end of the research program, the students present their research finding at the MohanLab joint laboratory meeting. Depending on the project, some of the research may contribute towards research publications. Students have the option of continuing their research with the lab, beyond the internship period, engaging in manuscript writing and/or data analysis.

Students with a strong academic track record and an interest in pursuing biomedical, medical, bioengineering, and health-oriented professions are encouraged to apply for this competitive summer internship program. We accept applications starting from February 1st, 2024, and the application period closes on March 31st 2024, 11:59 PM CST. Please send in your resume (with GPA and class rank) and a 1-page statement of research interests and 2 teacher recommendation letters (using enclosed form) to cmohan@central.uh.edu by the March 31st 2024.

Logistics: No funding is provided to admitted students. Out-of-Houston students are expected to make their own boarding arrangements.  Students should make their own transportation arrangements. Shuttle buses are available to Sugarland residents. Also, Houston Metro provides free Metro cards to students during the summer. Finally, the campus Student Center has several places for buying lunch.
