Eugene and Ruth Roberts Summer Student Academy at City of Hope
Summer students design and work on their own research projects in areas of their specific interests. City of Hope instructors act as mentors who provide valuable guidance and support while simultaneously encouraging independent thought and exploration. These instructors are faculty of the City of Hope Irell & Manella Graduate School of Biological Sciences. Program participants also communicate their research findings to their peers and instructors in a weekly student seminar series. We also mentor scientific writing by having students produce a written report at the end of their project. An important objective of the program is to develop vital oral and written communication skills, which are so important in the world of seminars, colloquia, manuscript publication and grant writing that is critical to graduate student and postgraduate life.
