2015 Summer Interns Tackle Diverse Projects


Nine students spent time with the Foundation team this summer, working on projects spanning from technical research to communications to assessing how the technology fits into the evolving health care environment.

Three of the 2014 interns remained with us over the year to delve deeper into their projects.

“As the program evolves, the projects these students take on become more complex, and we are able to bring in students from broader backgrounds,” says the Foundation’s Director of Extramural Research, Matt Eames, PhD. “This year, we were fortunate to welcome students from France and Korea, giving the group perspective on the global reach of this technology.”
