Fostering interdisciplinary collaboration from the laboratory to the clinic, the Institute for Immunity, Transplantation and Infection (ITI) offers an exceptional training ground for the next generation of leaders in immunology, infectious diseases and transplantation.
ITI offers a powerful framework for connecting knowledge with inspiration. As recognized innovators in the clinical and basic sciences, our faculty challenge MD and PhD students, researchers and postdoctoral fellows to pursue their scientific interests, while equipping them with the skills they need to make significant contributions in medical research.
Stanford Institutes of Medicine Summer Research Program (SIMR)
Now under ITI management the program is an eight-week program in which high school students from diverse backgrounds are invited to perform basic research with Stanford faculty, postdoctoral fellows, students and researchers on a medically-oriented project. The goals of the program include increasing interest in biological sciences and medicine in high school students, helping students to understand how scientific research is performed, and increasing diversity of students and researchers in the sciences.
