Precision Medicine Research Fellowships Info Session


Location: 103 McCourtney Hall

A video information session to learn more about this program directly from Feinstein Institute personnel will be held on Friday, January 20, 2017, from 4-5 p.m. ET in 103 McCourtney Hall. All interested students are encouraged to attend.

The Precision Medicine Research Fellowships are competitive awards given annually to highly qualified undergraduate and graduate students from Notre Dame that enable them to spend eight weeks in summer residence conducting laboratory and clinical research at the prestigious Feinstein Institute for Medical Research (FIMR) in Manhasset, New York. The Institute, which is part of the 21-hospital Northwell Health system, recruits more than 15,000 patients each year into over 2,100 studies. These fellowships afford Notre Dame students a rare opportunity to experience hands-on biomedical research in a world-class setting.

It is anticipated that four summer fellowships will be awarded this year – to two undergraduate and two graduate students. The fellowships are concurrent with FIMR’s existing visiting scholars program, which takes place from approximately June 1 to July 31 each year. The online application opens on January 13, 2017, and must be completed by 5 p.m. ET on February 28, 2017. Undergraduate Students: Each undergraduate student receives a total stipend of $5,600 ($700/week for eight weeks) to cover daily living expenses. Graduate Students: Awards to graduate students are treated as paid internships and equal the current summer stipend rate for graduate students or $5,600 for the eight week period, whichever is greater. For all students, the cost of transportation to and from FIMR and their home or campus is covered (within reason and subject to approval). In addition, the Feinstein Institute provides apartment housing on the institute’s campus, which is a 30-minute train ride from New York City, at no cost to our Precision Medicine Fellows.
