You can help researchers improve public health by volunteering for NIAID clinical studies.
Look into INRO.
NIAID and NIH websites to help search for training opportunities
INRO connects talented students from populations underrepresented in the biomedical sciences with training opportunities in immunology and infectious and allergic diseases at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). See if you are eligible for this opportunity and network with current trainees in a four-day, all-expenses-paid visit to NIAID. INRO 2014 will take place February 3–6, 2014, on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Campus in Bethesda, Maryland. We will be accepting applications for INRO 2014 beginning August 15 through October 15, 2013.
