Lincoln University – Fox Chase Partnership in Cancer Research and Training
2009 Summer Internship
Funding for the summer student internship has been secured through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, as a supplement to P20 CA138017, linked with P20 CA138068.
The overall purpose of the collaborative Summer Internship between Fox Chase Cancer Center (an NCI Designated Cancer Center) and Lincoln University (a Historically Black College/University) is to create an opportunity for selected students and faculty to train at Fox Chase Cancer Center with experienced cancer researchers conducting first-class biomedical and population-based research utilizing equipment and techniques otherwise unavailable in an academic setting.
The 2009 Summer Internship program provided a comprehensive orientation and training in areas of cancer biology and population science:
- Conducting scholarly research
- Health literacy [PDF 1.16MB], cultural competency and health disparities
- Biostatistics and bioinformatics
- Bioethics and biotechnology
- Understanding cancer and navigating resources, prevention, detection, treatment and control
- The conduct of basic science and clinical trials
- Regulatory compliance through the IRB, IACUC and Radiation Safety.
At the end of the 10-week long summer program, the original goals and measures were evaluated through questionnaires and interviews looking at the participants' knowledge and understanding as well as the program's effectiveness. As a result, both the students' and faculty members' experiences are evaluated for future program development.
Applications are now being accepted from Lincoln University undergraduate students (only) for the 2010 Lincoln-Fox Chase Summer Internship program.
