HSC Joins Oakland Children's Hospital for Research

Two Talks Will Be Given on Tuesday, November 13

Representatives of the Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute will be on the UNM Health Sciences Center Campus on Tuesday, November 13 to speak about student research program opportunities during the summer of 2008.

The UNM Health Sciences Center Office of Diversity is partnering with the Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute (CHORI) to provide summer research opportunities for students – both in California and New Mexico.

On Tuesday Dr. Vasanthy Narayanaswami of CHORI will speak twice on campus:

· at 11 a.m. on main campus at the Student Union Building in the Sandia Meeting Room;

· at 4 p.m in the Domenici Education Center at 1001 Stanford NE.

The objective of the CHORI Summer Student Research Program is to provide short-term training opportunities for undergraduate and health professional students. The goal is to provide research opportunities for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, racial and ethnic minorities, and others who are underrepresented in this field (e.g., individuals with disabilities).

The Program provides the students with a research training experience to stimulate interest in pursuing a career in biomedical, clinical and behavioral research in a friendly and nurturing environment.
