Does anyone know if summer program interns at the Jackson Laboratories will be working on live mice models or is it cell cultures of the mouse? I am little terrified of working on the live mice.
Some projects work with live mice, but there is an option to choose to not apply for these projects on the application.
Thank you @4729562. I hope by opting out of live mice projects does not have a negative impact on my chances of acceptance or reflect/imply that I have moral dilemma on research dealing of live animals.
If this is the Summer Student Program, I put that I didn’t have a problem with it but I never worked with mice. Closest I got to working with a mouse was making plates of mouse feeder stem cells. It kind of all depends on which labs are accepting students that particular summer to be honest. It’s a bit of a gamble. If you want more info, I’d be happy to answer any questions.
