Now in its 10th year, the Gates Summer Internship Program (GSIP) is committed to supporting the future of biomedical research and regenerative medicine by inspiring outstanding undergraduates to pursue careers in the field. The program offers training in Gates Institute members' state-of-the-art laboratories, as well as the opportunity to attend seminars focused on a diversity of topics and professional development, along with social events and activities. Since its inception, GSIP has gained widespread visibility, ignited professional careers, and has become a signature of Gates Institute's educational efforts to help advance regenerative medicine. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Gates Institute members Drs. Tamara Terzian, Neil Box and Enrique Torchia, who conceived of and founded the program at Gates Center for Regenerative Medicine (now Gates Institute). We will always be grateful to Rhondda and the late Peter Grant, whose generous gift enabled GSIP's launch, along with other champions whose dedication and generosity will sustain the program into the future.

The Gates Summer Internship Program (GSIP) is a full-time, paid 11-week training program. Interns will work in a Gates Institute member's laboratory, and participate in weekly GSIP seminars, social events and community service. They will present their summer research project in a poster session at the Final Day Program.
GSIP is open to undergraduates in a science-related major who are enrolled in an undergraduate program at the time of application. Former GSIP interns are encouraged to apply.
We welcome students from traditionally underrepresented groups in biomedical research, such as African American, Hispanic/Latinx, American Indian/Alaska Native/Native Pacific Islander, first-generation college students who are economically disadvantaged and students with disabilities. Students from rural or inner-city areas with limited access to research opportunities are also encouraged to apply. Information on Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus can be found here.
GSIP is open to international students who possess an F1 visa and are enrolled in a U.S. college or university.
