Summer 2018: CCNY-MSK Research Opportunities for Undergraduate Students

 

The CCNY-MSK Partnership program is offering research opportunities for undergraduate students. We especially encourage underrepresented minority students to apply. Deadline: February 5th, 2018!

CCNY-MSK Partnership Program offers the PURT for undergraduate students. The primary goals of PURT are to implement joint education and training opportunities between CCNY and MSK in order to attract minority students at all levels in their academic careers to be engaged in cancer research, and to support their career development. We prepare our trainees for laboratory positions and for graduate work. Trainees compete for a summer research placement based on their academic performance and recommendation letters. The PURT also offers a year long series of seminars in which invited speakers from various institutions discuss various aspects of career development and research opportunities for trainees entering doctoral programs. Trainees are required to take a course on ethics in biomedicine and research. Trainees are required to present their work at national and local meetings.
