Join the Lab
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to our lab's mission and values as we believe that research that includes diverse perspectives benefits us all as scientists, medical providers, and humans. We are committed to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment to all students, faculty, staff, volunteers, and guests regardless of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, veteran status, genetic information, sexual orientation or gender identity.
GRADUATE & MEDICAL STUDENTS
Dr. Norris welcomes rotating graduate and medical students each year for both cardiac and EDS research. Additionally, the lab can welcomes talented undergraduate and high-school students with a particular interest in our research areas.
Please contact Dr. Norris directly to discuss your interests.
We are currently offering two opportunities for patient-scientists:
The Gensemer hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Intern Program (HIP) is a 10-week summer internship on the campus of the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). HIP is meant for students (either college or graduate students) who have EDS or HSD to work on their own disease. Applications for HIP 2024 will open in late 2023.
The Norris lab Visiting Scholars Program provides short-term shadowing opportunities for individuals who have the intention of continuing their education, working in the space of EDS healthcare, advocacy or research and have a strong personal connection to the disease. Through this program, we can cover travel and housing for eligible participants. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis for this program as slots become available.
