    Hey,

    Did anyone here do the pre-doctoral summer internship at NIH? I want to do it so badly, so I'm trying to figure out what I can do to increase my chances of getting it. Any advice? I have tons of research experience and biotech experience. Anything advice from some experienced NIH Internshippers on how to make myself stand out in the application process would be greatly appreciated.

    :cool:

    I would email/call PI's at the NIH and start developing relationships. You can usually specify fields/institutes that interest you, and refering to these fields and relationships you formed can usually help with the application process. Read an article written by the PI and maybe mention/discuss/ask about it.

    And all the other stuff - get good rec letters, make a nice CV, proofread and polish your app.
