Fels Cancer Institute Research URM Undergrad Program
A lack of diversity with regard to race/ethnicity is apparent in the biomedical sciences at all levels. Approaches geared toward feeding the pipeline toward success in biomedical research have not been effective, suggesting that measures toward fixing this pipeline are necessary.
The Fels Cancer Institute Research URM Undergrad Program is a year-round research-intensive program consisting of laboratory research training, part-time during the Spring and Fall semesters and full-time training in the summer, under the supervision of pre-selected faculty mentors. Programming related to personal and career development will also be provided.
The goal is for students to develop the research and professional skills necessary to be competitive for research fellowship/programs and graduate school.
