Four students participate in Winship's newest summer research internship

Supported by new funding from the American Cancer Society, Winship’s Diversity in Cancer Research Internship is a 10-week summer program launched this year for undergraduate students from racial and ethnic backgrounds underrepresented in the scientific community. Led by Lawrence Boise, PhD, the internship offers hands-on research experience in Winship labs, career development, peer networking opportunities, and small group learning sessions.
