Partnership research training opportunities
The Research Education Core (REC) offers paid summer research opportunities for graduate students—particularly those from underrepresented minority backgrounds—who are interested in cancer/cancer disparities research. Trainees are matched, depending on interest, and placed at a UMass Boston or DF/HCC research lab. Trainees are required to participate in professional development activities and present their work at local and national conferences.
Contact U54REC@umb.edu for more information.
The Outreach Core (OC) offers paid research opportunities for graduate students who are interested in cancer/cancer disparities, public health, and community outreach. Graduate students will engage in a summer internship, research and career support and training on IS, CBPR, science communication and leveraging mentoring, and professional network development.
