BRUSH(ES) Summer Research Program

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Heart Lung and Blood Institute and Michigan State University (MSU) are sponsoring the BRUSH Summer Research Program at MSU for undergraduate and veterinary students interested in the biomedical sciences and research-related careers.

New this year, we are partnering with a National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences-supported program to bring you BRUSH Environmental Sciences, which emphasizes summer research focused on environmental health sciences, toxicology, and the impact of chemicals on disease. Together, the original BRUSH Program and the BRUSH Environmental Sciences Program form the BRUSH(ES) Programs.

The goal of the BRUSH(ES) Programs is to provide hands-on research exposure and graduate or professional school preparation opportunities for individuals who are from populations underrepresented in biomedical research. Program dates are May 23 to August 6, 2022. Undergraduate students earn a stipend of approximately $5,500 and are provided room and board at MSU Residential Facilities. See the below links for more information.

COVID-19: COVID-19: We plan to offer the BRUSH(ES) Programs in person in 2022, but if public health safety requires us to work remotely or in a hybrid model, we have the experience and dedication to provide participants with a rich and meaningful research experience. The health and safety of our students is of utmost importance, and thus all participants will be expected to comply with COVID-19 safety measures as implemented by Michigan State University and described here.
