Welcome to NHLBI Summer Students
To All National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Summer
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 pdf(898 KB);
read it on your Ipad or Nook;
read it on your Kindle.
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.
