Now accepting applications for 2012 Summer Student Research Fellowships

The Lupus Foundation of Minnesota is currently accepting applications from undergraduates for student summer research opportunities.

Feb. 22, 2012 - PRLog -- In support of its goal of cultivating a new generation of lupus researchers, the Lupus Foundation of Minnesota (LFM) is now accepting applications for its upcoming 2012 Student Summer Fellowship program, which provides research opportunities to undergraduate students .

The fellowship program fosters an interest in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) research by providing an opportunity for promising young scientists to participate in basic or clinical research with an established investigator. The students are connected with a faculty member conducting related research at local institutions including the University of Minnesota and the Mayo Clinic.

Since its inception in 1981, the Student Summer Research Fellowship program has supported over 100 young investigators. Fellowships are generally 12 weeks, but final hours and schedules are based on researcher and project specifics.

LFM fellowship opportunities are important steps in raising awareness and interest among a new generation of lupus researchers toward ultimately finding a cure.

Application deadline is 8:30 a.m. Monday, April 30.

Downloadable applications for the fellowship program are available under the "Grants and Research" tab at lupusmn.org. For more information, contact LFM President Jennifer Monroe at 952-746-5151 or jmonroe@lupusmn.org.
