If your practice is in an under-represented area, encourage high school and college students to apply for a summer program that encourages careers in cancer research.
Applications are now being accepted for the annual IU Simon Cancer Center’s Summer Research Program in Indianapolis. The program provides hands-on experiences for nine weeks beginning May 31.
Students are placed with a mentor or researcher and work with faculty conducting studies in areas of cancer research. The curriculum includes exposure to a wide-range of basic science, translational and clinical research activities, and interaction with the cancer center’s research programs.
Students are selected on interest in biomedical or behavioral science, grades and personal interviews. High school students must have completed their junior year and have a grade point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Undergraduates must have completed 24 hours of college credit, be majoring in biomedical or behavioral science and maintain a grade point average of at least 3.2.
The application deadline is Feb. 17. Find information here.
