2023 PCEN Summer Research Scholars Program

The Washington University Pediatric Center of Excellence in Nephrology (WU PCEN) is pleased to request applications for our 2023 Summer Research Scholars Program.

This program aims to inspire future leaders in pediatric kidney disease research by engaging students in meaningful research and clinical experiences in kidney development, biology, cutting-edge technologies, preclinical model systems and pediatric nephrology.

The program is open to undergraduate, post-graduate, or medical students. Start and end dates are flexible as academic schedules may vary for each student; however, an 8 week commitment is required. Students will work with a mentor on a research project, and will have opportunities for didactic training and clinical shadowing in nephrology. Students will also participate in seminars about research and careers in medicine, and will take one or more lecture series in relevant fields.

Students will receive a $4000 stipend. Please note: Housing is not provided as a part of the program. A small stipend towards housing MAY be available in addition and will be determined on availability of funds near the start of the program.  For this stipend, we will prioritize applicants from underrepresented racial/ethnic group or disadvantaged background.
