Tri-Institutional Minority Society Summer Scholars Research Program (TIMS SSRP)

As a joint program collectively run by The Rockefeller University, Weill Cornell Medicine and the Sloan Kettering Office of Diversity, TIMS SSRP is a summer program that aims to increase minority recruitment and retention in the sciences. Specifically, the program provides cutting edge biomedical research experience to minority, low-income undergraduate students interested in pursuing research careers. The 10-week program offers participants research internships in labs studying mechanical engineering, biochemical and medical research. BioVenture eLab partners with TIMS SSRP to provide these students with the opportunity to join a 2-hour educational session in the summer to learn about entrepreneurial programs offered through Weill Cornell Medicine.
