The Summer Undergraduate Research program is a ten week research program for undergraduates interested in a basic science. Students will be matched with a faculty mentor in any number of areas of biomedical research. Students will be part of our Summer Experience program, including a lecture series stressing basic, translational and clinical research as it relates to cancer.

If you are a student in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics or computer science, and are in good academic standing, you are eligible for this program. Students that are thinking of pursuing an advance degree (Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D.) would benefit the most from our program. Students will be engaged in research in world class cancer research laboratories.


To qualify for the program, students must have successfully completed their first two years of undergraduate training in science by May 2016, and should demonstrate an interest in scientific investigation.
