As part of its Science Education Outreach Program, BBRI invites local students into the laboratories for internships each summer. BBRI student interns are given the opportunity to gain hands-on experience using lab equipment and assisting scientists and postdoctoral fellows with day to day lab activities and experiments. As former BBRI student intern Andrew Bisbas said, “There’s no better way to learn than being in a lab.”
Pictured are the 2004 summer students who spent their vacation immersed in research and experiments alongside BBRI‚s scientists.

Minority students are especially invited to apply.
