HARVARD –MIT DIVISION OF HEALTH SCIENCES AND TECHNOLOGY
The Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology (HST) is the most successful interdisciplinary biomedical engineering
and physician scientist training program in the country. With over 400 students enrolled in Master's, Ph.D., and M.D. programs, HST
is a joint collaboration between MIT and Harvard where HST M.D. students receive a medical degree from Harvard Medical School
and most HST Ph.D.'s are granted by MIT. But ALL HST students are trained to appreciate clinical investigation. The hallmark of
HST educational programs is creating for HST students the amazing opportunity to engage in research and a curriculum where they
learn the tools to begin their own translation of innovation from the laboratory bench to the bedside -- and in parallel, the transferal of
clinical insight from the bedside back to the lab. HST students are trained to have a deep understanding of engineering, physical
sciences, and the biological sciences, complemented with hands-on experience in the clinic or in industry; and students become
conversant with the underlying quantitative and molecular aspects of medicine and biomedical science.
           - The Summer Institute at Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology - offers a unique opportunity for outstanding
           students considering a career in biomedical engineering and medical science. Program participants gain hands-on research
           experience working alongside members of an internationally recognized scientific community. The programs are designed to
           help participants explore career options or prepare for graduate level research. There are two exciting areas of study to choose
           from: Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics HST's Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics program (BIG) trains
           students in the quantitative sciences, providing them with broad knowledge of biology and clinical medicine, along with
           specific skills in the engineering and information science of genomics. Biomedical Optics: This nine-week research program
           immerses students in the growing and dynamic field of biomedical optics—the use of light in biology and medicine.
           Biomedical optics is already a driving force behind a number of new applications, including minimally invasive surgery,
           which uses optical techniques to view the inside of the body through tiny incisions.

MARIA MITCHELL OBSERVATORY
Located 30 miles off the Massachusetts coast on Nantucket Island, the Maria Mitchell Association (MMA) honors America's first
professional woman astronomer who believed that students learned best by doing real research projects. The MMA is dedicated to
furthering science education, encouraging women in science, and serving as a science resource for Nantucket. Our MISSION is to
increase knowledge and public awareness of the universe and the natural world through programs of scientific research and education.
Astronomical research at the Maria Mitchell Association is conducted by the director of astronomy, Dr. Vladimir Strelnitski, with the
assistance of visiting senior staff and six summer student research assistants appointed every year through the Research Experiences
for Undergraduates (REU) program, funded by the National Science Foundation. Recent senior visiting astronomers have included Dr.
Nikolai Samus of the Sternberg Astronomical Institute of the Moscow State University, and Dr. Geoffrey Clayton of the University of
Louisiana.
         - REU in Astronomy - In the framework of its NSF funded REU program, the Maria Mitchell Observatory (MMO) will
              have up to six research positions in the summer of 2008 for qualified undergraduate students with interests in astonomy
              and physics. The positions provide an opportunity for students to conduct independent research supervised by the senior
              staff of the MMO and qualified visiting scientists. The Maria Mitchell Association (MMA) of which the MMO is one
              department, has been supervising undergraduate research in astronomy for fifty years, including 17 years within the NSF
              REU Program. The current research areas include forming stars and planetary systems, variable stars and galactic nuclei,
              astrophysical masers and lasers, astrochemistry, observations of exosolar planets and other topics. The students will
              have an excellent opportunity to aquire observational learning material for their projects by observing the new MMO 24"
              Ritchey-Chretien telescope with a CCD camera, and, possibly, by doing on-site and/or remote observations with the
              ARO 12-m millimeter-wave radio telescope on Kitt Peak, AZ. Students are helped to develop their skills in presenting
              results at conferences and in research papers. The major results of the student projects are presented at the winter
              meeting of the American Astronomical Society and other meetings. Most of the students have also been authors or co-
              authors of papers published in scientific journals. Students acquire teaching skills by assisting with the Observatory's
              public "Open Nights" and by guiding public tours of the permanent Astronomy exhibit.

MAYO MEDICAL CENTER
Mayo Foundation is a charitable, not-for-profit organization based in Rochester, Minn. Its mission is to provide the best care to every

         - Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship - The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program of
         the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine is for students who see themselves as research scientists of the future. It is particularly
         suited for those who want to do research that has the ultimate goal of improving medical treatments. Each year, 80-90
         undergraduates from around the U.S. come to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, to work with investigators on a broad
         array of biomedical research questions. Approximately ten fellowships are also available at Mayo's sites in Scottsdale,
         Arizona and Jacksonville, Florida. Mayo's SURF program provides more than just work experience in a lab. As a SURF
         fellow you will conduct a small research project or work on part of an ongoing research investigation for 10 weeks, develop
         technical, analytical and communication skills, participate in a weekly seminar series that introduces rapidly progressing
         research areas, acquire in-depth knowledge related to a scientific field and receive advising on applying to PhD, MD and
         MD/PhD programs.
