Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation (MCRF) continues a 40 year tradition of concluding the Summer Student Research Internship Program with a Symposium on Thursday, August 13, from 8:15am until 12:00pm in Froehlke Auditorium at Marshfield Clinic Marshfield Center. A luncheon follows the presentations.

Directed by Huong McLean, PhD, and Bobbi Bradley, MPH, the summer internship provides a 12-week mentored research experience tailored to the student’s skill level and is related to ongoing research at the Marshfield Clinic. The program enables students to put their education into practice as they work side-by-side with scientists who are experts in their fields.

The Summer Student Research Internship Program is supported entirely through philanthropy. Thanks to the generosity of many community partners, Clinic employees, foundations, businesses and a major sponsorship by The Boldt Company, the program has the financial resources to host nine students this year.

Staff, scientists, and physicians are invited to attend as many of the presentations as schedules allow. The Symposium can also be viewed via MediaSite Live:
