Founded in 1898, and affiliated with what is now NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital since 1927, Weill Cornell Medical College is among the top-ranked clinical and medical research centers in the country. It is divided into 24 basic science and patient care departments that focus on the sciences underlying clinical medicine and/or encompass the study, treatment and prevention of human diseases. In addition to offering degrees in medicine, Weill Cornell also has Ph.D. programs in biomedical research and education at the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences, and a joint MD-Ph.D. program with neighboring Sloan-Kettering Institute and The Rockefeller University.
The Sandra and Edward Meyer Cancer Center is offering summer internship opportunities to high school and undergraduate students interested in exploring exciting cancer research questions. Students will immerse themselves in the fundamental principles of scientific investigation, get hands-on experience in laboratory techniques, or perform dry-lab research under the mentorship of our basic science and clinical research faculty. Our goal is to educate and inspire students at an early-stage to pursue future careers in cancer research.
