Fred Hutchinson Biomedical Research Opportunities

4 December 2018

Research Program:
The Summer Undergraduate Research Program at the Fred Hutchinson CancerResearch Center (FredHutch) is an intensive, nine-week internship designed to provide research experience and mentorship for undergraduate students who are interested in biomedical research. Under the guidance of a faculty mentor, students will complete an independent research project and present their findings at a competitive poster session. The program runs from Monday, June 10 through Friday, August 9,2019. Students must be able to commit to this entire period in order to participate.

Interns will be paired with a faculty mentor after selecting one of the following areas of interest:

Basic Science: Conducts fundamental research in structural, genetic, molecular, cellular, developmental, and evolutionary biology; Human Biology: Interdisciplinary research; conducts lab-based and computational research at the interface of basic, clinical, and population sciences; Public Health:Uses large populations as a“laboratory” to look for links between cancer and its possible triggers, from diet and lifestyle to environmental and genetic factors. Conducts statistical, epidemiological, and prevention studies around the world;

Clinical Research: Works to develop and analyze new treatments for cancers and other diseases; and Vaccine and Infectious Disease: Integrates computational, laboratory, and clinical research methods to advance the understanding of microbial pathogenesis and infectious disease processes.
