Undergraduate Cancer Research Training Program, 2013

The Center to Eliminate Cancer Health Disparities at Charles Drew University (CDU) and the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center at UCLA (UCLA) are hosting a great summer internship opportunity for undergraduate students and the deadline, February 1, is coming up.

The Undergraduate Cancer Research Training Program (UCRTP) is a summer internship to train undergraduates in technical and critical thinking skills in a laboratory, clinical, or community setting. The goal of the UCRTP is to ensure that each undergraduate student acquires the knowledge, skills, and attitude to become a proficient researcher in cancer research.

Research topics include but are not limited to:

  • molecular, cell, developmental biology and genetics of cancer
  • the influence of lifestyle choices, diet, and exercise on cancer risk
  • translating basic research into cancer therapeutic agents.

Each student intern acquires training by working on a hypothesis-driven scientific research project, at CDU or UCLA, alongside a designated mentor during the course of 8-12 weeks. A stipend is provided to students in the program.

The internship is competitive, and applications are due on February 1, 2013.
