UCI Cancer Research Institute Youth Science Fellows Program 2018
High school student education
The UC Irvine, Cancer Research Institute sponsors a summer internship in cancer research for high school students. The overall goal is to build the pipeline for the next generation of cancer researchers. A select group of high school students works in the laboratories of CRI affiliates for 6-weeks during the summer. They carry out bench work on research projects under the guidance of faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers or technicians. They also attend weekly meetings where they receive advice on careers and the college admissions process. At the end of the program they make presentations on their research.
