Call for Summer Research Opportunity Information


The Teratology Society is looking for information on 2017 summer research opportunities that are designed for science and mathematics undergraduate and graduate students preparing for future careers in toxicology, regulatory science, or related scientific disciplines.  The research activities should provide meaningful experiences and should be focused on exposure and training in scientific research and preparation for advancement in science.

This information will be distributed by Dr. Elise Lewis (Chair, Membership Committee) who will be attending the upcoming Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) on behalf of the Teratology Society.  ABRCMS is managed by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) and is funded by a T36 grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) Division of Training, Workforce Development, and Diversity. ABRCMS began in 2000 and has become one of the largest professional conferences focused on the scientific training of underrepresented students in STEM disciplines.  ABRCMS provides a forum for underrepresented minority (URM) students to present their independent research and to learn more about education, training, and career opportunities in STEM.  As an exhibitor at the ABRCMS meeting, the Teratology Society has the unique opportunity to expose students to our society as well as to network and mentor undergraduates and other early-career graduate students seeking information about unique research opportunities and training programs.
