Division of Intramural Research

Welcome to NHLBI Summer Students

May, 2013

To All National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Summer Research Students:

On behalf of the NHLBI's Division of Intramural Research, we would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the NHLBI. We hope that your time spent with us in a research laboratory will increase your interest in biomedical research and encourage you to continue your pursuit of a career in the biomedical sciences.

In addition to your time in the laboratory, the NHLBI Office of Education has planned other activities to enhance your summer experience on the NIH campus. All NHLBI summer students are invited to a series of Pizza lunches sponsored by the Office of Education. These lunches will provide an opportunity for summer students to meet each other and to become familiar with the spectrum of research, both clinical and scientific, going on in the intramural program of NHLBI. The complete schedule is available by clicking here: Summer Seminar.

Other campus activities are sponsored by the NIH Office of Intramural Training and Education. A complete schedule of events and activities is in the summer handbook, available on line.  Download the handbook as a pdfimage of PDF icon(898 KB); read it on your Ipad or Nook; read it on your Kindle.image of external icon

A special feature of the Summer Program is Poster Day, where you will be able to share your research results. It is scheduled for Thursday, August 9th in Natcher. You are encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities to present your research findings to the NIH scientific communities.

The Office of Education (OE) at NHLBI is especially interested in making your experience as profitable as possible. The OE can provide information about scientific careers, especially emphasizing the Graduate Program Partnerships that let you do a Ph.D. or an M.D./Ph.D. here on the NIH campus. The web site at Research Training in the NHLBI gives you an overview of the services that are available, and has links to all of the research and training opportunities at NIH. It includes a special link to provide information for summer students at: Information for Summer Students in the Division of Intramural Research. This page also has links to the vast cultural and recreational resources of the Washington Metropolitan area. We hope you find it useful. We invite you to visit the Office of Education located in Building 10, Room 2N242 to discuss the summer program and how we can help you achieve your goals.

We look forward to meeting you soon. Please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Education at if you need any assistance during your stay here.


Sincerely yours,

Robert S. Balaban, Ph.D.

Herbert M. Geller, Ph.D.

Scientific Director

Director, Office of Education
