Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Summer Internship

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 Montana State University.  I have attached an informational brochure that offers an overview of the program and a brief snapshot of important dates below, including how to apply.


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

Other Biomedical Research Internships

I also wanted to share with you a resource that my colleagues and I developed, which is a catalog of biomedical research internships offered nationwide for high school, undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, graduate, and first-year medical students.   Feel free to share this resource with faculty and students.
