Biomedical Research Internship of Abilene

The Biomedical Research Internship of Abilene (BRIA) is located on the Abilene campus of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and is associated with the Department of Immunotherapeutics and Biotechnology. The vision of the Department is to be a leader in precision oncology therapeutics through cutting-edge interdisciplinary research. As part of a diverse research team, our interns work in state-of-the-art labs on projects to develop new cancer therapies and uncover new knowledge of cancer biology that could lead to a cure for cancer.  This internship offers undergraduate students a unique hands-on opportunity to gain research skills. BRIA is ideal for highly motivated students who aspire to become biomedical researchers and are considering further training in a biomedical or pharmaceutical Ph.D. or MS program.

Interns accepted into the BRIA program will work full-time for 10 weeks from May 30 to Aug 4.

Summer Accelerated Biomedical Research

Summer Accelerated Biomedical Research (SABR) is located in Lubbock, TX and affiliated with the Biomedical Sciences Ph.D. program.

The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences has faculty involved in many relevant, interesting research areas with state-of-the art labs and equipment. The SABR Program is an excellent educational opportunity, with a commitment to fostering the intern's desire for science and research. Our program is intended for undergraduate students or current graduates who wish to gain more research experience before entering graduate school. 

The SABR program will introduce its interns to a full-time work schedule, which can be a first-time experience for many. During these 10 weeks, our interns will be exposed to the life of a graduate student, as well as learn to become more independent and self-autonomous. Along the way, interns will be helped by their mentor, graduate students, other lab staff members, and the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences' administration.

The program runs from the end of May to the end of July.
