STEER Program: Short Term Educational Experiences for Research in environmental health sciences for undergraduate students

Interested in how the environment affects human health?

Spend ten weeks this summer (June 15th through August 7th) working with a University of California researcher in a paid summer internship program. Gain valuable research experience working on federally funded projects. Join other students who are interested in careers in science working on projects that could be important for future academic and career opportunities.

Topics for research projects could include, as examples, one of the following:
• The relationship between socioeconomic status, air pollution and asthma
• Early life exposure to particulate matter and development of respiratory symptoms
• Exposure to ambient air pollution and bioaerosols and long-term asthma illness
• Respiratory effects of exposure to polycyclic hydrocarbons from traffic
• How environmental exposure to pollutants contribute to declining health
• Chronic respiratory effects of early life exposure to particulate matter
• Biomarkers of chemical exposure and leukemia risk
