Lanterman Vascular Surgery Student Research Program

kelly-with-shadow.jpgThrough the generous support of the Joseph B. & Marjorie M. Lanterman Endowed Research and Education Fund in the Division of Vascular Surgery at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, a research program geared towards students interested in pursuing mentored clinical or basic science surgical research was developed in 2015. 
The goal of the program is to introduce students (high school, undergraduate, or medical school) to the challenges and excitement of research and to inspire trainees toward academic careers that incorporate basic biomedical and clinical research.
Students will be mentored by a faculty member within the Division of Vascular Surgery and will work on a specific research project. Interested students are encouraged to apply by submitting a resume and completed application form.
