About the Cancer Research Internship for NMSU Graduate Students
This program is designed to provide experience and mentorship for graduate students interested in diverse aspects of cancer research in human populations. Accepted students, in coordination with their mentors, will design a project tailored to the student’s interests.
In addition to completing a mentored research project, students will also participate in weekly research seminars, professional development workshops, and a competitive poster session.
The program will run from Monday, June 12 through Friday, August 11, 2017. In addition, accepted students must participate in a one-week NMSU Biostats Workshop to be held late May 2017. Students must be able to commit to the entire internship period, as well as the workshop, in order to participate.
