The Howard Hughes Medical Institute Medical Fellows Program gives medical, dental, and veterinary students a chance to focus on a research project full-time and determine how they can incorporate research into their professional careers. This program includes an opportunity for students interested in neuronal network function or imaging at the cellular and molecular level to participate in a yearlong program at Janelia.
Fellows at Janelia take part in cutting-edge research and work with small, interdisciplinary teams of chemists, biochemists, neurobiologists, geneticists, physicists, computer scientists, mathematicians, and engineers from around the world in a collaborative, creative, resource-rich environment.
This intense research training experience is targeted to highly talented students with a proven track-record of research accomplishment and a commitment to a basic research field being pursued by Janelia investigators.
Life at Janelia includes:
- A full agenda of seminars, conferences, and journal clubs;
- A chance to interact with outside faculty speakers, HHMI investigators, and other renowned researchers;
- State-of-the-art laboratory and conference facilities;
- Well-appointed on-campus housing; and many other amenities.
