Undergraduates - Junior

Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center (Roswell Park) offers summer research experiences to undergraduate rising seniors. The program provides interns the opportunity to conduct research and experience the life-style of a researcher at an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center.

Interns spend 10 weeks (First week of June to mid-August) working full-time on an independent research project under the supervision of a RPCI scientific staff member and alongside graduate students and post-doctoral trainees. Research experiences are enriched by a variety of career-development activities which include: weekly seminar series, cancer education outreach in underserved communities, attendance at the Roswell Park Science Retreat and visits to commercial life science companies. The program concludes with a scientific conference at which interns give a lecture and present a scientific poster on their research project. Applications for the upcoming summer research program are accepted from undergraduate students who are CURRENTLY enrolled in Junior year or in the credit-equivalency of Junior year in college. During a typical program year, eighty to one hundred students apply to the program of which between twenty and twenty-five are accepted into funded positions based on applicant eligibility, application merit and availability of funding sources.
