Application for SSCR, sponsored by the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, HSC Scholars in Cancer Research is an innovative, integrated training program focused on the students at critical transition points, early undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral career stages that are essential to meet the need of the cancer research workforce in Texas and USA. Summer Scholars in Cancer Research (SSCR) is one of the program components of the HSC Scholars in Cancer Research Program offered to undergraduate students. This program is designed to provide stage-specific competencies for undergraduates in science knowledge, research skill development, professionalism, and communication. The students will be trained through short-term exposures in the field of cancer and health disparities. The Summer Scholars will have an 8-week mentor-guided cancer research training experience with enrichment activities (e.g. didactic workshops, scientific seminar, role model seminar, mentoring workshops and ethics training) expected to provide a comprehensive introductory exposure to cancer-related biomedical research.
