2016 Summer Cancer Research Fellows

Cancer Research Fellowships

The BYU Simmons Center for Cancer Research (SCCR) is dedicated to training undergraduate and graduate students in experimental oncology in an effort to make a significant contribution to finding a cure for cancer. Each year the SCCR sponsors numerous cancer research fellows. These students are given the opportunity to perform full-time cancer research under the direction of their faculty mentor. Competition for the awards is keen. Those selected receive a competitive stipend in order to allow them to give full attention to their research during the Spring and Summer terms at BYU.

Over the years participants have had an average grade point of 3.65 and have previous research experience under the supervision of a faculty member involved in cancer research.
