Stanford University Canary Cancer Research Education Training (CREST) Program*
The Canary Cancer Research Education Summer Training (CREST) Program at Stanford University offers a 10-week research experience in one of their state-of-the art labs. Each participant will be matched with a faculty mentor who will help them craft a research project. Senior scientists and postdoctoral fellows will assist the faculty in supervising and mentoring the students in the lab. The successful applicant can expect to work in a dynamic lab environment on challenging projects that involve a broad range of research techniques. Additionally, students will learn about the field of cancer early detection (from in vitro diagnostics to in vivo molecular imaging) through specially-designed short classroom sessions, as well as participate in professional development and career seminars. This program culminates with a Symposium, where students present individual posters on their research projects in front of their peers, faculty and lab mentors, and other Stanford scientists.
