About the Frankel Cardiovascular Center Summer Fellowship Program

The Michigan Medicine Frankel Cardiovascular Center is pleased to offer a summer fellowship program to support undergraduate students interested in cardiovascular research. Any student who is currently enrolled at any degree granting University or College is eligible to apply, with preference given to those students interested in a career in research.

Each student will be matched based on their interests, to a laboratory that is led by a faculty member of the Michigan Medicine Frankel Cardiovascular Center. This collection of laboratories is involved in nationally recognized research in topics such as atherosclerosis, genetic cardiomyopathies, blood clotting disorders, cardiac arrhythmias, vascular biology, and heart failure.

The stipend is $4,000 for ten weeks of full-time work, starting the Tuesday after Memorial Day and ending around the first week of August. There will be a research symposium at the end of the summer where fellows will present on the research they worked on over the summer, as well as opportunities to attend research seminars throughout the program. For more information please see the Applicant Information page.
