The window for submitting applications to the highly competitive and prestigious Research Science Institute (RSI) at MIT is now open. The deadline for submissions is 11-January-2013 (receipt deadline not postmark deadline).
This program allows the student to engage in an immersive research environment that essentially resembles graduate school. All of this is built on the core belief at MIT that meaningful work requires the combination of deep thought and deliberate action (Mens et Manus). Last summer Jade Moon participated and conducted research on metabolism and cancer in cell culture. Her efforts will soon be published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
If you are interested in this opportunity, I encourage you to visit the RSI website. Additionally, please feel free to contact Jade Moon or Dr. Hills for more details.
