STEM Series and the The Chancellor’s Education Pipeline Biomedical Research Award

If so, you may be interested in applying for one of 15 Chancellor’s Education Pipeline Biomedical Research Awards to work and learn at Stony Brook University at the Center for Science and Mathematics Education, (CESAME).

The ten-week award includes a two-week laboratory techniques course, followed by eight weeks of hands-on biomedical research under the supportive and watchful mentorship of a Stony Brook University faculty member.

Winners of the Chancellor’s Education Pipeline Biomedical Research Award will receive a $3,500 stipend, on-campus housing (for non-Long Island students), up to $500 toward travel expenses, plus $1,000 for supplies for the laboratory in which they do their research.
