This form is for UConn HEALTH FACULTY interested in hosting a student summer researcher through the Partnership for Innovation and Education (PIE) program for Summer 2019. See the PIE Program website for more information: https://ctpieinfo.wordpress.com/. The PIE program covers the student’s summer research stipend; you need to provide a project, mentorship, supplies and space. The purpose of this form is for you to tell us what kind of student you are looking for, and what kind of research project you have in mind. Research projects must be Bioscience, Biotechnology, or Bioengineering-related. Faculty at UConn Health, Jackson Labs, CCMC, CCSU, SCSU, Trinity College, University of Hartford, University of St. Joseph, or Tunxis Community College are eligible to apply to be host mentors.
Timeline: Please complete this form no later than Friday, February 1, 2019. You will be contacted by February 6 with the applications of students who best matched to your project, and you will then be able to choose which student you want to host. We are especially seeking mentors who are willing to consider extending the research project into the academic year through Independent Study.
Please contact Dr. Caroline Dealy with any questions about the PIE Program.
