The Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center has hosted a summer undergraduate cancer research program for nearly 20 years. We are excited to continue this successful program in the summer of 2024.
The Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center invites applications from interested undergraduates. Applications are open November 1, 2023 until February 1, 2024.
Applicants must be US Citizens/Permanent residents. Undergraduates must be in biomedical sciences or related degree field. Those in a bachelor's degree program should be in their sophomore or junior year when applying. For those in an associate's degree program, preference is given to those in their sophomore year or completing their degree when applying. As a stipulation of our funding sources, preference is given to undergraduates from populations historically marginalized in science (NIH definition).
These internships are designed to provide an outstanding atmosphere for training in medical research. The mentors are faculty members of the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center and come from 17 departments and 6 colleges at the University of Iowa.
