Description:
The Canary CREST Program is a 10-week paid internship program at our world-class research center dedicated to early cancer detection, the Canary Center at Stanford. We offer a unique summer research training opportunity for undergraduate students. Each participant will be matched with a Stanford University Faculty mentor who will help them craft a research project. The successful applicant can expect to work in a dynamic state-of-the-art lab environment on challenging projects that involve a broad range of research techniques. Additionally, students will learn about the field of cancer early detection (from in vitro diagnostics to in vivo molecular imaging) through specially-designed short classroom sessions, as well as participate in professional development and career seminars. The program culminates with a Symposium, where students present individual posters on their research projects in front of their peers, faculty and lab mentors, and other Stanford scientists.

Undergraduate students enrolled in two- or four-year colleges or universities are eligible to apply. We encourage applications from groups underrepresented in the sciences. Students will receive $4,000 for participation in the program. The program also offers housing and travel assistance.
