The Irving Institute for Cancer Dynamics at Columbia University is an interdisciplinary institute located on the Morningside Heights Campus, and focused on the interplay between mathematical sciences and cancer research. Among our cancer research interests are tumor evolution, computational 'omics, immunology and metabolism. IICD offers a 10-weeks summer research opportunity for talented undergraduate students to provide the participants with an interdisciplinary research experience, mentoring and professional development opportunities.

Students will work full-time on a research project under the mentoring of an IICD researcher. In addition to research, participants will attend weekly events, such as scientific seminars, workshops, career and professional development events, lab tours, scientific writing/presentation opportunities, etc. Undergraduate students from mathematics, computer science, statistics, computational biology, data science, biology, engineering, etc. are welcome to apply. Students from traditionally underrepresented groups in STEM fields are strongly encouraged to apply.
