Discover how the OMRF Langston University Biomedical Research Scholars Program can help you explore and launch a career in biomedical research.
The OMRF Langston University Biomedical Research Scholars program starts with a paid summer internship. Students work full time in an OMRF laboratory on an individual research project under the guidance of OMRF scientific mentors. This eight-week intensive research program gives Langston students hands-on experience solving real-life scientific mysteries.
In addition to working in OMRF labs, scholars attend weekly seminars led by scientific staff, participate in social events, and write a scientific paper and give a formal seminar describing their summer project.
The work done during this program makes a lifelong impact, not only in helping shape the futures of young Black scientists, but also in fighting human diseases. Scholars’ work endures long after the summer ends and could change lives — theirs, and potentially those of patients everywhere.
Following the successful completion of the summer program, scholars may explore options to continue their work for multiple academic years enjoying longer term mentorship and employment opportunities.
Scholars are chosen by a joint selection committee consisting of representatives from OMRF and Langston University. OMRF will provide housing free of charge to all students who live outside of the Oklahoma City metro area.
