High School & Undergraduate Cancer Programs
Stanford Medicine has a number of cancer learning opportunities for high school students and undergraduates.
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.
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.
To train the next generation of interdisciplinary scientists, we offer a unique summer research training opportunity for undergraduate students.
For undergraduate students interested in solving complex problems in cancer through interdisciplinary research.
