The MHIRT Program

  • The MHIRT Program at CBU provides international research training opportunities to qualified undergraduate, graduate, and medical students from socially or economically disadvantaged groups who have been historically underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral research careers.
  • This program offers research sites in Brazil, Uganda, Kenya, and Thailand.  Students spend 10 weeks during the summer at their designated international research site.  CBU has partnered with leading scientists and universities in these countries who serve as research mentors for MHIRT students.
  • MHIRT students engage in research related to: biomedical science, behavioral science, environmental science, carnivore conservation, and/or public health. 
  • MHIRT is a paid internship.  All expenses relative to travel, room and board, preparation, and workshops are paid.  In addition, students receive a monthly stipend.
  • This program has been continuously funded since 2000 by the Fogarty International Center and the National Center for Minority Health and Health Disparities at the National Institutes of Health.
