Binghamton University has created a new type of summer research program for STEM undergraduates.
It provides a stepped, multi-mentored, team-based experience that is ideal for students with little, if any, research experience. Last year the summer research streams were biomedical chemistry and image & acoustic signals analysis, with rising sophomores, juniors and seniors – all STEM majors with aspirations for medical school or graduate school but as yet no research experience. They completed a summer research project of publishable quality, and all demonstrated substantial personal and professional growth. Typical comments about SRI.
For summer 2017 we are offering four research streams, which we already offer for BU students during the academic year:  
  • Biomedical Chemistry focuses on molecular targets for treatment and delivery. The goal is to identify molecular mechanisms of action of proteins, and then new strategies to control their activity.


  • Image & Acoustic Signals Analysis (Computer Science-Computer Engineering) focuses on research and development in human image and acoustics. Students are involved in developing digital forensic and biometrics techniques and designing environments that will shape future trends in human-computer interaction.


  • Microbial Biofilms in Human Health (Microbiology) focuses on biofilms, communities of microorganisms living on surfaces and encased within a protective slime matrix. They pose problems in industrial and medical settings due to their tolerance to aggressive antimicrobials.


  • Molecular & Biomedical Anthropology (Lyme disease) focus on population health and biomedical studies of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. Students involved in DNA extraction, PCR amplification, gel electrophoresis, genotyping and DNA sequencing.

The Burke Medical Research Institute invites applications from qualified undergraduate students for our Summer Student Research Program. This program provides an opportunity to conduct cutting-edge research for those students interested in pursuing a career in biomedical sciences.
Participants will be part of a laboratory research project related to neural repair and rehabilitation. Summer research students have extensive interaction with their faculty mentors and their staff.

◾The 2017 program will run from June 5th to August 11th.

◾Trainees will receive a stipend of $3,000

◾Housing and transportation are the responsibility of each trainee.

Applications are due by March 15th, 2017.
