National Cancer Institute ICBP Summer Fellowship Program

The Summer Cancer Research Fellowship program provides a unique opportunity for eligible sophomore or junior college students to engage in innovative approaches to cancer research through the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Integrative Cancer Biology Program (ICBP). The ICBP, composed of nine multidisciplinary centers across the United States, focuses on the analysis of cancer as using systems biology approaches. Researchers within each ICBP center integrate experimental biology with mathematical and computational modeling to gain new insights into the biology and management of cancer.
