The Center for Colon Cancer Research is hosting its 3rd year of the Summer Undergraduate Minority Research Program for minority students who have an interest in biomedical research.  This program has been running since May 22nd, and ends on July 28, 2017.  The goal of the Summer Undergraduate Minority Research Program is for each student to work in a research laboratory related to his or her career interests, and to decide whether a research career is a good fit.  For those students interested in a research career, this program will provide them with information for applying and being accepted to a high-caliber graduate training program.  This Summer experience, along with hard work and good grades, will help the students become highly competitive applicants.
