Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) provide graduate students opportunities to engage in unique and cutting-edge research conducted at LLNL. The GUMC/LLNL Summer Scholars Program was launched in the summer of 2012, and is available to MS in Biotechnology students who have completed their Capstone Internship (BCHB-502) in spring. This 10-week full-time internship culminates in poster presentations at the LLNL Student Poster Symposium in early August.

Internship projects are available in research labs as well as the Industrial Partnerships Office. Students are selected to apply by the Program Director based on GPA, skills, and career goals.
