About Arthritis Foundation

With offices in all 50 states and D.C., the Arthritis Foundation is the largest private, nonprofit arthritis research organization in the world.  This allows the foundation to focus on following radical and exciting research paths to a cure for arthritis and on training new investigators-including interns, through its George Hagan Memorial Summer Science Fellowship Program.

Internships at the foundation emphasize hands-on work in arthritis research labs at either the University of California at San Francisco or Stanford University.  There, interns assist a select few principal investigators with their work on projects related to finding a cure for arthritis.  Research covers a wide range of fields, from the most basic chemistry to molecular biology and genomics.
