In its third year, the Foundation’s summer internship program welcomed a record 12 students to collaborate with the Foundation staff. With so many hands on deck, many teamed up to tackle more complicated projects.

“This year’s group of summer interns made great contributions to research,” says the Foundation’s Director of Extramural Research, Matt Eames, PhD. “Their work resulted in a publication submission, and many will join us at the Symposium to present their work. The Foundation team enjoys guiding these students, and we feel energized by their fresh insight into some complex projects.”

Claude Moore Foundation logoThe 2014 program was generously funded by and named in honor of the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation. “Establishing the Claude Moore Summer Internships supports our mission to cultivate the next generation of focused ultrasound researchers,” said the Foundation’s Director of Development, Pamela Minetti.
