Translational Obesity Undergraduate Research (TOUR) Scholars

Join us this Summer at Virginia Tech!

Funded by an NIH R25 Research Education Grant, and under the umbrella of the Center for Transformative Research on Health Behaviors, the Translational Obesity Undergraduate Research Scholars (TOUR-Scholars) Program is a research-intensive summer experience which prepares students for graduate and medical education in translational obesity research.

TOUR-Scholars will be matched with a faculty mentor, working across the obesity translational spectrum. Ten students will be chosen to participate.

Each student will receive a $5250 stiped, and participate in workshops, site visits to laboratories where translational research is ongoing (including a daytrip to the NIH), and presentation in the annual VT Summer Research Symposium.

Applications due January 11th, 2019.

Notifications by February 2019
