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. To view previous mentor research projects, visit go.uth.edu/cprit-summer and click on the “Mentor Profile” tab.

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. Check out our website. 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.
