Fralin Biomedical Research Institute Summer Undergraduate Research Fellows present neurobiology and advanced imaging findings


Twenty undergraduate students moved to Roanoke this summer to join two competitive, 10-week Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship programs hosted by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC.

“Undergraduate students have the opportunity to work closely under the guidance of some of the most innovative and productive biomedical research scientists in the world at the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute,” said Michael Friedlander, Virginia Tech’s vice president for health sciences and technology and the institute’s executive director. “It is mutually beneficial for the students, the faculty, and the other members of the lab teams to share the excitement, passion, and intellectual curiosity of these early career scientists – and physicians – in training.”
