Summer Research Program for Medical Students
A component of The University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center is one of the nation's leading cancer centers dedicated to patient care, research, education and prevention.
Information about the 2013 Summer Research Program for Medical Students will be posted in December 2012
The purpose of the Summer Research Program for Medical Students is to provide participants with firsthand biomedical research experience in the basic or clinical sciences. Student projects are submitted by MD Anderson faculty mentors and will reflect the ongoing research efforts of the institution's clinics and laboratories. Individuals selected for the program will actively participate in both the technical aspects of their projects and the interpretation of experimental data. At the end of their summer experience, students will submit their research data in journal article format. Program trainees will be afforded the opportunity to acquire research skills and, through participation in institutional seminars and lectures, receive information that will be valuable in assessing their career goals related to research and patient care in oncology.
