University of Michigan Anti-Racism Statement:
“Michigan Medicine unequivocally recognizes racism as a public health issue, and we should be standing out as leaders against inequality. We are committed to creating fundamental change that leads to a culture of anti-racism, and a medical school and health system that are leaders in equity, justice, and inclusiveness for people of all colors.
As part of this, we are passionate about ensuring that Michigan Medicine is a leader in health equity. We must be vocal about the fact that people of color in America remain negatively and disproportionately impacted by violence, limited access to quality health care, and poor health outcomes. We must move to understand and eliminate these disparities.
About FCVC SURF
The University of Michigan Frankel Cardiovascular Center (FCVC) is pleased to offer an annual 10-week summer undergraduate research fellowship to support undergraduate students interested in basic cardiovascular research. The program starts the Tuesday after Memorial Day and ends the first Friday in August.
Each fellow will be matched to a laboratory led by an FCVC faculty member and participate in nationally recognized research in areas such as atherosclerosis, genetic cardiomyopathies, blood clotting disorders, cardiac arrhythmias, vascular biology, and heart failure.
Fellows are expected to work in their mentor’s lab, attend weekly scientific seminar series, participate in organized social events, and present their summer research findings at the End of Summer Symposium through an oral presentation to faculty, staff, and peers.
The fellowship stipend is paid via bi-weekly paychecks (direct deposit available) at a rate of $15 per hour (pre-tax) for ten weeks of full-time work (40 hours per week).
