General Description: UofT and the School of Medicine, SDU agree to offer a research program opportunity for University of Toronto students at Shandong University in the Summer. SDU will provide UofT students research opportunities in a variety of areas, such as, immunology, genetics, molecular biology, physiology, medical microbiology, cell biology, neurobiology, tumor research and, metabolic diseases. The research opportunities will vary from year to year. In early January SDU will provide UofT with the list of research projects available for the summer of that year.  The program will last for 2 to 3 months, starting from early July and terminating before the beginning of the next semester in early September. UofT students will do the experiments under the instruction of a SDU lab supervisor. The lab instructor will ensure that UofT students are briefed on health and safety procedures in the laboratory and will monitor that the students are conforming to these procedures. In each laboratory, students will have the opportunity to learn the techniques and data analysis required for the specific research project, participate in lab discussion and Journal Club, and take part in scientific research presentations.
 
Student Selection: The number UofT students to be enrolled will be approximately 6 per year.  To be eligible students must have completed basic studies in Biology.  Students will be expected to complete the SDU application form, rank their choice of research activities, and provide information why they feel they would be well suited to these research activities.  UofT will prescreen the student applications and will send them, along with the students’ academic records, to SDU in early March. SDU will make the final selection of participants and may require UofT students to participate in an interview. SDU will rank the students and will provide UofT with the ranking of the students selected within two weeks of receiving the applications.  UofT will make offers to the students in the ranked order until the maximum number of research spaces are filled.
