During the summer months MaineHealth Institute for Research (MHIR) provides undergraduates with an opportunity to engage in biomedical research projects through the MHIR Summer Undergraduate Research Program.

Research at MHIR covers the spectrum of biomedical science in our various Research Centers: Center for Molecular Medicine, Center for Clinical and Translational Science, Center for Interdisciplinary Population & Heath Research, and the Center for Applied Science & Technology.

The Summer Undergraduate Research Program is ten weeks in duration, and students work 40 hours per week. Students are responsible for their own transportation and housing, though resources will be provided to help students search for housing options in the Greater Portland area.

We welcome you to review the information provided here about the 2024 Summer Undergraduate Research Program, including eligibility and program dates, as well as previous student projects. Please revisit this page on December 4, 2023 when the application will go live.
