You can help researchers improve public health by volunteering for NIAID clinical studies.
Join the NIAID research community for four days in February to learn more about the research training experience at the National Institute of Allergy and infectious Diseases, a leader in global health research.
Applications Open August 15
Our research fellows are part of a group of committed scientists who are crossing traditional scientific boundaries to solve today's complex global health problems. You can be part of a diverse community of aspiring NIAID researchers. Join other dedicated science students like yourself for an all-expense-paid, four-day visit to our research facility in Bethesda, Maryland.
Outstanding undergraduate seniors, doctoral students, and medical students, find out what it is like to train as a researcher at a leading multi-disciplinary research facility. Expenses for travel, hotel accommodations, and meals will be paid.
The INRO program seeks students interested in conducting research in allergy, immunology, or infectious diseases. Only those students actively pursuing a research training position at NIAID will be selected. At INRO, you will learn about the many training opportunities available to you, including the following:
INRO is intended to support students from populations underrepresented in the biomedical sciences interested in pursuing a research career in allergy, immunology, or infectious diseases. If your interests lie outside the biomedical research areas of NIAID, NIH offers a number of other training programs for which you may be eligible. For information on all NIH training programs, please visit Research and Training Opportunities.
Participation in INRO does not guarantee a training position at NIAID. Every effort will be made to identify laboratories within NIAID that would be a good match for INRO participants.
If I become an INRO-sponsored research trainee at NIAID, what will my responsibilities be?
As an INRO trainee, the Office of Training and Diversity ensures that you receive rigorous research training in the laboratory, complemented by career and professional mentoring and skills development to ensure your competitiveness in the field of biomedical research. As a trainee, you will do the following:
