Students applying to the Brown SR-EIP are frequently offered an opportunity for research with one of the following groups:
Brown SR-EIP students have frequently been placed with researchers in the academic departments of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology & Biochemistry (MCB), Molecular Pharmacology, Physiology & Biotechnology, Neuroscience and Chemistry, and the Pathobiology Graduate Program.
Since 1992, Brown Medical School's National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Short TermTraining Program has given students access to outstanding researchers in heart, lung, blood, and sleep disorders research. Research experiences have primarily been based in the departments listed above, as well as in the clinical departments of medicine, neurosurgery, orthopaedics, pediatrics, and surgery.
The Brown SR-EIP partners with the School of Engineering to place students in the following research areas: biomedical engineering, chemical and biochemical engineering, electrical sciences and computer engineering, fluids and thermal sciences and materials science. The Brown SR-EIP works closely with the Institute for Molecular and Nanoscale Innovation.
Beginning in 2014, Brown SR-EIP students will be placed at the Brown-Yale Center for Chemical Innovation (CCI). This center aims to develop new catalytic chemistries that enable CO2 to become a sustainable feedstock for large-scale commodity chemicals.
Also beginning in 2014, Brown SR-EIP students will find new opportunities in the Division of Applied Mathematics. Team research opportunities funded by a National Science Foundation REU will be offered by the Research Training Group (RTG) on "Integrating Dynamics and Stochastics (IDyaS)."
The Population Studies & Training Center
(PSTC), an internationally respected demography research and training center offering an outstanding interdisciplinary graduate training program. Research interests include social demography, economic demography, anthropological demography, and population health.
The Brown School of Public Health offers doctoral programs in epidemiology, biostatistics and health services research.
Students interested in the humanities and social sciences should refer to the Leadership Alliance Mellon Initiative.
