Summer interns in the Magnasco Lab
High School and Undergraduate interns.
Rockefeller University supports summer internships in its research laboratories through two prestigious and highly competitive programs: Science Outreach, for high-school students, and SURF (Summer Undergraduate Research Fellows). Students who are accepted to either of these two programs may apply to come to our lab.
Student volunteers who are not admitted through these programs may be accepted to the lab as plain volunteers. However, the Laboratory is not prepared to (a) offer stipends directly to students, or (b) sponsor visas for foreign students. Please do not ask us, we have already tried and failed.
We are proud that many students in these programs have won prestigious prizes, awards, publications, etc. Please see at the end.
We list the participants in the last few years:
Jessica Maghakian (statistical analysis of ancient texts)
Oriol Pich (blind deconvolution algorithms in electrophysiology)
Daniel Pollack (fluid transport in leaves)
David Sakyi (structure of the mammalian liver)
