About the Frankel Cardiovascular Center Summer Fellowship Program

The University of Michigan Frankel Cardiovascular Center is pleased to offer a summer undergraduate research fellowship June through August 2021 to support students interested in cardiovascular basic science research.

Please note, due to the pandemic, exact program dates and format are pending.

Each fellow will be matched to a laboratory led by a 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. During the program, students are expected to work full-time in their mentor’s lab, attend the SURF seminar series, and participate in organized social events. At the end of the summer, we host a research symposium in the Danto Auditorium where fellows give an oral presentation on their research findings over the summer.

The stipend is $4,000 for ten weeks of full-time work, starting the Tuesday after Memorial Day. For more information please see the Applicant Information page.
