University of MN Department of Pediatrics: Summer Undergraduate Research

8 February 2023

The University of Minnesota is home to leading clinical and translational research programs focused on improving outcomes for children diagnosed with cancer and blood diseases. We support comprehensive clinical, research and education programs with a focus on five core areas: epidemiology, leukemia, brain tumors, solid tumors (sarcomas) and childhood cancer survivorship.

We are currently looking for exceptional undergraduate students to complete an 11-week, intensive research experience, designed to provide immersive research training for students interested in a career in academic research/medicine. Each student will conduct a small, independent research project focused on a scientific question using computational biology. Over the course of the summer, students will be expected to informally discuss their research results in laboratory and group meetings. A student’s work will be directly supervised by a faculty member or a designated post-doctoral associate working in the laboratory. At the end of the summer, students will present their research to faculty from the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, the Division of Pediatric Epidemiology and Clinical Research, the Division of Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplantation & Cellular Therapy, and other selected guests. This is a paid internship at $15/hour.
