Editor’s note: The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute Summer Scholars Program (CRISSP) is a competitive and dynamic internship that provides undergraduate students with hands-on experience in academic research, exposure to various facets of a career in pediatric research and/or medicine, and direct mentoring by CHOP faculty.
