Immunology Track

About the Track

Immunology is the study of the immune system. Within immunology, there are subtopics such as infectious diseases, autoimmunity, vaccine development, and cancer immunology. With the COVID-19 pandemic, the study of immunology is crucial more than ever.

Undergraduate students accepted into the immunology track will work under top-notch immunologists. Students will be mentored by an immunology faculty and work alongside graduate students on a cutting-edge research project. The internship will take place at Anschutz Medical Campus over an 8-week period during the summer. During this internship, students will learn essential research skills and fundamental techniques in immunology. There will be weekly virtual seminars intended to complement their in-lab training. Seminar topics will span a variety of topics, such as workshops on reading scientific papers, applying to graduate school, giving a successful scientific presentation, and a biomedical sciences career panel. At the end of the internship, students will present their research in both oral and poster presentations as part of a campus-wide summer research symposium.

Participation into the internship will allow students to network with renowned faculty and graduate students to establish a long-term mentorship. Students will be able to expand their knowledge, skill sets, and boost their resumes in preparation for application to graduate school.
