High School & Undergraduate Cancer Programs

Stanford Medicine has a number of cancer learning opportunities for high school students and undergraduates.

High School

Stanford Institutes of Medicine Summer Research Program

The Stanford Institutes of Medicine Summer Research Program (SIMR) is an eight-week program in which high school students from diverse backgrounds are invited to perform basic research with Stanford faculty, postdoctoral fellows, students and researchers on a medically-oriented project.

High School Program in Biomedical and Health Sciences (STEP-UP Program)

STEP-UP students work with mentors (professors, postdoctoral fellows, medical or graduate students, or research assistants) to develop a hands-on summer project. The project not only enhances the student’s knowledge and skills in a particular area of scientific interest, but also enhances both their overall research capabilities and interest in pursuing a research career.

Undergraduate

Canary Cancer Research Education Summer Training Program (Canary Crest)

To train the next generation of interdisciplinary scientists, we offer a unique summer research training opportunity for undergraduate students.

NCI Systems Biology and Physical Oncology Summer Undergraduate Research Program

For undergraduate students interested in solving complex problems in cancer through interdisciplinary research.

Events/ Seminars

Faculty and guest speakers provide updates and expert perspectives on diverse aspects of cancer research.


Diversity

Diversity in all forms enhances Stanford Medicine's core missions — education, research and health care.
