Learn With the AOIP

Our students come to us from a variety of programs, and with varied expertise, including medicine, cell biology, engineering, neuroscience, image processing and computer programming. Medical students at Medical College of Wisconsin typically participate via the Clinical and Translational Research Pathway. We also accept undergraduate students through both the Program for Undergraduate Research Experience (PURE) and Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) programs offered through the MCW Graduate School, as well as high school students participating in the Research Opportunity for Academic Development in Science (ROADS) program. In addition, we have numerous other research opportunities for local students from the Milwaukee School of Engineering, UW Milwaukee, or Marquette University.

If you are interested in our program, please contact Joseph Carroll to discuss current research opportunities.  Get to know our current students on this page or view our graduates on our alumni page.
