    hey,

    i was wondering if anyone knew of any good labs or research programs/fellowships in new york city that is willing to let med students do summer research (after m1 year). i really open to all basic or clincial science areas and hope to get a publication (or at least an abstrat/poster presentation). a stipend (amount doesn't really matter) would be good as well.

    i know there many opportunities at all the big schools in nyc (cornell, columbia, nyu, siani, etc) but if anyone has had any particularly good experience, i would love to hear. im not from the area, so im not sure where to start looking. (you can PM me with specific info)

    i have a solid basic science research background (publications, poster presentations) if that helps....

    thanks!

    The NY Academy of Medicine has fellowships, and MSKCC has an amazing program (with a 5% acceptance rate). What you should do is email around, find a good mentor, and apply for outside funding - there's lots of it.

    I did this for last summer, applied to Parkinson's Disease Foundation, American Academy of Neurology, and I missed the APDA but it was another option. And, ask the PI if he/she will fund you directly in case you don't get outside funds. Also, if you're willing to go to NJ, RWJMS has some fabulous labs, though our summer fellowships are only for RWJMS students.

    Cancer Research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering. Didn't do it personally, but have a friend who really had a wonderful experience as well as got a publication for his work.

    The MSK program is the only structured fellowship I've found offered in NYC. I certainly plan on applying. But it looks massively competitive.
