Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowship Program
Mentored Research Experiences
Fox Chase Cancer Center continues to mentor undergraduates from diverse colleges and universities by engaging them in summer research projects. Since the early 1990's, Eileen Jaffe has had oversight for a competitive undergraduate summer research fellowship program which has funded between 12 and 15 Fellows per summer. Although FCCC is currently seeking sponsorship for this very effective program, there is a continuing institutional commitment. The current stipend is set at $4,000 for ten weeks of full time research. More
Technical and Conceptual Introduction to Cancer Research Course
Applications are now available for a newly designed laboratory research course for high school students and teachers.The Spring 2013 course will focus on the effects of chemotherapy treatments on normal tissues. Under this theme, students will learn basic laboratory techniques and conceptual skills including experimental design and analysis, the cellular basis for cancer, and statistical analysis, as well as gaining an appreciation for the importance of working together as a team to address a significant biomedical problem. The course will provide students with the comprehensive training required to function safely in research laboratories, expose them to cancer research, and educate them about cancer and cancer treatment.
