SUMMER CANCER RESEARCH PROGRAM

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The goal of this program is to develop additional opportunities for
medical students to acquire cancer research training and
experience, to motivate these students to prepare for careers as
cancer investigators, and to increase their knowledge and
understanding of the relationships between research findings and
the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. We propose to recruit 15
exceptionally qualified and motivated first year medical students
to work as student assistants under the mentorship of cancer
investigators during the three-month summer period between
their first and second year. A total of 26 members of Einstein's
Cancer Research Center have agreed to serve as mentors for
these student assistants. Planning, development and monitoring
of the program will be under the aeges of a six-member Cancer
Education Program Committe with the Director serving as
Chairman. The research projects available to the student
assistants are in the areas of immunooncology, viral oncology,
gene expression, receptor-mediated growth and differentiation,
membrane synthesis and structure, carcinogenic and
chemotherapeutic agents, clinical oncology and epidemiology.
