2018 Fred Hutch Summer Undergraduate Research Program | Catalog of Biomedical Research Internships

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch) hosts a summer internship that is designed to provide biomedical research experience and mentorship for undergraduate students of rising senior status.  We would appreciate your help promoting the Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) among students at Case Western Reserve University.

About the Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP)

The SURP is an intensive, 9-week internship designed to provide research experience and mentorship for rising-senior undergraduate students who are interested in biomedical research.  Under the guidance of a faculty mentor, students will:

  • Complete an independent research project;
  • Attend weekly research seminars;
  • Participate in professional development workshops designed to facilitate the preparation of competitive applications for graduate/medical school; and
  • Present their findings at a competitive poster session.

The program will run from Monday, June 11 – Friday, August 102018.

An online application for the 2018 SURP will be available via the SURP website in mid-November 2017.

The application deadline is midnight Pacific Standard Time (PST) on Friday, January 12, 2018.

Letters of recommendation for up to two references are due by midnight Pacific Standard Time (PST) on Friday, January 19, 2018.
