Description/Abstract

To help address the challenge of providing diverse research experiences at a small liberal arts college, a collaborative summer internship program was developed between New College of Florida and the Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute (LRRI), a leading organization on prevention and treatment of lung disorders. Each year, 6-10 students are screened for needed bench or computational skills and matched with laboratory mentors and suitable projects. Many of these are now computational and involve large-scale processing of biological datasets. Outcomes of student projects include publication, authorship, and presentations, at professional meetings, and have continually improved with lessons from past iterations.
