Research and Clinical Opportunities

University Of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center

Medical Student Summer Research Program in Biomedical Sciences


The purpose of the program is to provide participants with firsthand biomedical research experience in the basic or clinical sciences. Student projects are submitted by faculty mentors at the Cancer Center and will reflect ongoing research efforts in the Institution's clinics and laboratories. Students will actively participate in both the technical aspects of their project as well as interpretation of experimental data. Trainees will be afforded the opportunity to not only acquire research skills, but also, 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.
