The USC Keck School of Medicine- Alzheimer’s Therapeutic Research Institute (ATRI) in San Diego, California offers a summer Student Research Internship Program for undergraduate, graduate and professional students. All interns will work closely with and learn from an internationally renowned, multi-disciplinary team of scientists, researchers and staff members in the areas of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) clinical trials research.

The primary aim of the internship program is to expose students to the science of conducting clinical trials for AD and to provide a unique opportunity to explore careers in AD therapeutic research while developing research skills. In addition to the completion of a focused summer project, students will develop connections with other ATRI interns and staff, and will be considered a part of the ATRI network and community.

Interns will learn about their day-to-day tasks through their specific work assignments and interact with Institute Directors and their teams through a series of Professional Development Workshops. Interns will be required to submit an end-of-project report, approved by their ATRI mentor. The report will summarize the research/creative project, intern activities, and culminates in a presentation at the Annual ATRI Summer Student Research Seminar.
