Summer Research Programs
Training the next generation of clinicians and scientists is at the foundation of the Lurie Cancer Center's mission. Our summer research programs give students the opportunity to learn and become active participants in cancer research. The hope is that these new experiences will inspire students to consider health- and science-related careers.
