About the Program
High school students are welcome to apply for an 8 week, paid summer research internship at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The Hutchinson Center has an international reputation for its pioneering research in biological sciences, bone marrow and stem cell transplantation, cancer prevention, epidemiology, and biostatistics.
Selected Interns will spend 1 full week in training. This includes hands-on training in laboratory safety techniques and skills in our Training Lab, a designated safe lab for minors. Selected Interns will select an area of interest amongst our five major divisions: Basic Science, Human Biology, Clinical Research, Public Health Sciences, and Vaccine and Infectious Disease. For more information about faculty research and each of these scientific divisions, please visit: http://www.fhcrc.org/en/labs.html. Interns will then be paired with a mentor who will supervise them over the remaining 7 weeks on a specific project outlined by their mentor.
