Cancer Research Internships for Undergraduate Students is an intensive, nine-week internship that provides research experience and mentorship for NMSU undergraduate students who are interested in biomedical research.

Cancer Research Internship for NMSU Graduate Students is a nine-week internship that provides research experience and mentorship for NMSU graduate students interested in diverse aspects of cancer research in human populations.

A pre-requisite for participation in the CRI-G (see above) is a one-week NMSU Data Analysis Workshop that addresses the basic foundations of population science research methods, biostatistics, and epidemiology.  Other NMSU graduate students who have completed introductory epidemiology and biostatistics coursework and are seeking formal training in data analysis are welcome to participate in this workshop.

The Epi 590: Cancer Health Disparities course is a graduate level class co-taught by faculty from the FHCRC, NMSU, UW, and other institutions at the University of Washington (UW) that focuses on cancer health disparities.

Undergraduate Teaching Experience for Post-doctoral Fellows program at NMSU provides training in classroom teaching to FHCRC post-doctoral fellows and enhances cancer education at NMSU.

The Using Case Studies in Teaching workshop, held at the FHCRC, offers a unique experience for FHCRC post-docs and senior graduate students to learn about using case studies in science teaching. 

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is a world leader in research to prevent, detect and treat cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
