General Information
Institution Name: 
UT MD Anderson Cancer Center
Program Information: 

For ten weeks during the summer, SPCR students participate in hypothesis-driven, project-based investigations and attend a weekly lunch lecture series covering topics such as DNA structure and repair, epigenetics, stem cells, signal transduction and apoptosis, and emerging analytical techniques. Other activities include social events and tours of the MD Anderson Houston and Bastrop campuses. The program culminates in the SPCR Scientific Symposium, where interns give a 10-minute presentation describing their research results. It is not uncommon for students to make significant research contributions and to earn co-authorship on scientific abstracts and manuscripts. SPCR students receive a stipend of $6,000 for the 10 weeks. The 2018 program dates are June 4, 2018 through August 10, 2018.
