American Brain Tumor Association Medical Student Summer Fellowship Program


The American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) is now accepting applications for the 2014 Medical Student Summer Fellowship program, a 10-to-12 week laboratory experience designed to attract and motivate young, talented medical students to pursue a career in brain tumor research. Medical Student Summer Fellows spend their summer in a neuro-oncology laboratory, learning basic science research skills from experienced mentors. Each Summer Fellow will receive a stipend, and is required to submit a report on their experience. Based on these reports, an “outstanding medical student” is selected to receive the annual ABTA Lucien Rubenstein Award.  The recipient of the award, named in honor of Lucien J. Rubenstein, M.D., a professor of neuropathology at the University of Virginia and a world-renowned brain tumor research, will receive a bonus.
