Hawaii-INBRE invites undergraduate students (preferably entering sophomore or junior year in Fall 2024) for the summer University of Hawaii Cancer Biology Internship from June 3 – July 26, 2024. Hawaii-INBRE will accept up to two students from the RAIN states to participate in this summer research program. The home state would arrange and pay for round trip airfare, while HI-INBRE would cover housing and contribute funds for meals during the 2-month period. The two selected students will work in the laboratory of Dr. Peter Hoffman learning Cell and Molecular Biology research techniques pertaining to cell and mouse models of liver cancer. Additionally, these students will join a larger cohort of summer students as part of the “Cancer Research Education, Advancement, Training and Empowerment (CREATE) R25 at the University of Hawai’i Cancer Center (UHCC). This program includes safety training sessions, weekly seminars, and a poster session at the end of the two-month period where students get to present their research in a poster format.
Interested applicants should submit a CV and one paragraph statement describing their interests in Cancer Biology to Kari Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 15, 2024.
