Description:
CURE (Continuing Umbrella of Research Experience Program) is a summer research program at the Lurie Cancer Center for underserved college students interested in pursuing careers in the biomedical sciences. Each year the Lurie Cancer Center accepts 12 college students to work alongside top cancer researchers in state-of-the-art laboratories. The scientists act as mentors and work with students on nationally funded laboratory research projects during the eight-week summer program. Students are also introduced to the basics of cancer research through focused seminars presented by faculty on various research topics. Students are also introduced to the basics of cancer research through seminars presented by faculty on topics such as cancer genes, cell cycle proteins, biology of prostate cancer, hematologic malignancies, etc. At the end of the CURE program, each trainee is required to prepare a brief written summary and to give an oral presentation of his or her project to fellow CURE students and research mentors.
