Want to research?

January 5, 2012 —

DMU ResearchFaculty and students at Des Moines University work together in first-rate facilities on diverse research studies regarding health and wellness, and you could be a part of it.

Are you an undergrad student (or know of one) interested in research or a future career in health or medicine? Then check out the mentored research program. This opportunity gives students one-on-one experience with our research faculty in microbiology, pharmacology, physiology, biochemistry and physical therapy. It’s a 40-hour a week project during the months of June/July with a stipend and tons of hands-on experience.

Space is limited, so get your application in soon!
