Summer Research Experience in Environmental Health (SREEH)

— A program for undergraduates and high school students in Connecticut

Yong Zhu

SREEH is for students who want to conduct state-of-the-art, hands-on research under the guidance and instruction of Yale faculty mentors in environmental health sciences. The SREEH program draws on the resources, infrastructure and expertise of the Yale Schools of Public Health, Medicine, Forestry and Environmental Sciences, and Engineering & Applied Science to develop young scientists. In addition to weekly mentoring and meetings about their independent research projects, students will be exposed to a wide range of career development and skill-building classes to help them learn lab techniques and safety, to present and communicate their results, prepare for publication and disseminate findings to the community. 

Applications will require a copy of academic transcripts, letters of recommendation and a personal statement.
