UTSA/UTHSCSA 2017 Summer Internship program

The Cancer Bioinformatics Initiative: A UTSA/UTHSCSA Partnership offers exciting ten‐week summer research internship programs. The goal of this program is to train UTSA students from quantitative fields such as computer science, statistics, and related disciplines in cancer biology. This unique program matches each undergraduate and master's level student from UTSA with a UTHSCSA cancer researcher as well as a UTSA faculty member from the student’s home department. Participants will engage in research as part of an ongoing cancer/health disparity research project, attend seminars, actively participate in a student journal club, and tour various research divisions at the UTHSCSA. Successful candidates will receive a stipend of $4,000 to help defray the cost of participation in the program. Students may be eligible for independent study or internship credit applicable towards their degree. Click here for application information ...
