Intramural NIAID Research Opportunities (INRO)

INRO is intended for science and medical students from populations underrepresented in biomedical research, financially disadvantaged backgrounds, or those with disabilities.

Join NIAID’s diverse research community for 4 days in February to learn about the research training experience at the Institute, and find out what it is like to train as a researcher at a leading multi-disciplinary research facility. NIAID will pay expenses for travel and hotel accommodations and reimburse INRO students for meals after the program.

INRO 2018 will be held February 5 – 8, 2018. INRO 2018 Flyer
