If you want to help improve global health in the 21st century, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) wants to train you.

NIAID, one of the largest Institutes of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), offers the Intramural NIAID Research Opportunities (INRO) program for students from populations underrepresented in biomedical sciences. This four-day exploratory program takes place on the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD, on February 5 to 8, 2018.

Become part of a diverse community of aspiring NIAID researchers and join other dedicated science students like yourself for a visit to our research facility. Expenses for travel, lodging, and meals will be reimbursed.

Selected applicants will

    • Learn about global health research from NIAID’s premier scientists
    • Interview with scientists for potential research training positions
    • Meet trainees currently doing research in NIAID laboratories
Candidates with strong academic standing who are college-level seniors, medical school students, or doctoral candidates nearing their dissertation defense are eligible. Check your eligibility and read testimonials from previous INRO participants.

If INRO sounds like your next step toward a research career in allergy, immunology, or infectious diseases, apply now!

Applications are accepted between September 1 and October 15, 2017.
