Leading Research in Human and Animal Disease NIH Veterinary Scholars Program Biomedical Research
The Johns Hopkins University Department of Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology is pleased to offer six Veterinary Scholars Program fellowships for veterinary students. This is a paid summer research fellowship for veterinary students who have completed their first or second year of veterinary school. Research Scholars will spend 12 weeks doing cutting edge translational research with faculty at our world renowned biomedical research university. At the end of their experience, the Research Scholars will present their research at the National Veterinary Scholars Symposium hosted by University of Minnesota.
Eligible host labs are led by proven mentors, and detailed information on research directions can be found on our webpage (http://mcp.bs.jhmi.edu/people). You will be asked to rank 3 research concentrations that interest you from the list below, and you will be matched with a mentor.
The program starts May 23, 2023 and continues for 12 weeks. Veterinary Scholars Fellows will join a community of five other veterinary students engaged in this program and twelve veterinarian fellows with interest in research, laboratory animal medicine, and/or comparative pathology in the department. The program includes multiple organized professional development activities. Research Fellows are encouraged to take vacation before or after the fellowship dates, however there will be flexibility in the start date for students whose academic year ends later than May 23, 2023. This program provides a weekly stipend of approximately $549 through NIH support. Students will not be able to be a part of another NIH supported program simultaneously while being supported by Johns Hopkins University NIH support.
Qualifications To be eligible, a student must have completed a minimum of 1 year of their veterinary curriculum, have an interest in exploring research as a career, and be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. The student need not have previously participated in research activities. Partcipation in prior Boehringer Ingelheim or NIH T35 funded research programs at other institutions does not disqualify applicants from participating in this program.

The Department of Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine carries out the three-fold mission of research, teaching, and service through its expertise in veterinary medicine, pathology, and animal models of disease. Training of veterinary scientists in comparative medicine and comparative pathology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine began in the 1960s and continues today.
Current faculty research areas include animal models of HIV/AIDS, cancer, degenerative CNS diseases, cardiovascular disease, developmental biology, hematology/immunology, and rickettsial, parasitic, and infectious diseases. Faculty, residents, and post-doctoral fellows share their expertise in veterinary pathology and animal models with other investigators in other departments and work to insure the health and welfare of laboratory animals at Johns Hopkins.
