As a requirement for the completion of Master of Science in Immunology (IMNO) program, the opportunity for an intensive hands-on internship in the broad field of immunology is provided to the students. Project for internship could be focused on cellular and molecular aspects of immune system or immunological functions, inflammation and autoimmunity, viral immunology as well as vaccine and immunotherapy. Research in these areas are currently ongoing in laboratories within the domain of the Drexel University College of Medicine and more specifically in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology and the Institute for Molecular Medicine and Infectious Disease. The host laboratories will be selected on the basis of their research as well as student interests and future career goals.
Students will also gain experience with analyzing data that they help to generate or that they discover during their review of the literature, as well as presenting that information in written and oral formats. A list of faculties within the Drexel community is provided below. While emphasis will be placed on laboratories within Drexel University, internships may also be completed in laboratories at other academic institutions or at sites outside of Drexel University involved in immunological research.
