Summer Research Enhancement Program (SREP):
Space is limited – apply early. Program is closed when all positions are filled.
Diné College has developed a model program for training students in public health prevention research. Diné College believes that Native American students are more likely to develop an interest in prevention research if those interests are nurtured in a culturally supportive atmosphere.
The intent of the research training program is twofold:
- To provide health-related research training and research experiences to Native American students, and
- To provide students with a firm grasp of the health and living concepts embedded in traditional Native American life, how they relate to those taught in western academia
The Undergraduate Readying for Burgeoning Research for American Indian Neuroscientists (URBRAIN) is a culturally aware and community oriented collaborative partnership between Diné College, the Center for Innovation in Brain Science at the University of Arizona, the Biomedical Learning and Student Training program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and the National Institutes of Health. We are funded under the training grant R25-NS107185.
