Summer Research at University of New Mexico

The Cancer Research – Scholarship and Training in Population Sciences (C-STEPS) program at University of New Mexico (UNM) provides a cancer-focused research experience, career mentorship, interactive seminars, and team building that culminate in a Capstone project at the end of 10 weeks.

C-STEPS scholars have the opportunity to work directly with UNM faculty and their teams to explore research and careers in Cancer Control and Population Sciences during the 10-week summer program. C-STEPS provides scholars with hands-on, skills-based research experiences across the cancer continuum, from prevention to survivorship. These activities help scholars meet graduate and medical school goals.

More information about C-STEPS can be found on the program’s webpage. The application for summer 2023 is due February 1, 2023.
