innovation bookDo you have a cancer-related research project and are interested in hosting an exceptional undergraduate with a young innovative mind from June 3 –Aug. 9, 2019?

This summer, 20-25 undergraduates will be working with UTHealth professors at the School of Public Health, School of Biomedical Informatics, and Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences in a program funded by Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT).  Previous summer placements have resulted in posters, published articles, and quality recognitions.

Summer fellows will work 10 weeks (June 3, 2019 – Aug. 9, 2019) and will be paid a stipend of $5,200. This is not an internship to use the summer fellows for a GA position.  It is an opportunity to expose students to meaningful experiences in population science in the varied areas related to cancer prevention and control.  Examples are:

  • analyzing public policy initiatives
  • data mining and mapping
  • systematic literature reviews and meta-analyses
  • economic analyses
  • statistical analyses
  • formative work and pilot studies of new interventions…

If you have a well-structured project that fits our criteria, consider being a mentor. The deadline for submitting a Mentor Research Opportunity form is Friday, Jan. 4, 2019, at 11:59 PM (CST).

This program is funded by CPRIT #RP160015.
