Xiangya Medical Student Research Program

The Xiangya Medical Student Research Program is an opportunity for faculty to recruit and mentor medical students from the Xiangya School of Medicine (Changsha, China). These students come for full-time, 2-year commitments to contribute their time and skills to progress research in our biomedical labs. In return, faculty are to mentor these students. This includes transfer of knowledge in technical lab skills, scholarly writing, and publication and presentation of work.
