ISP students work with professional scientists and educators, drawing from their personal experiences to design projects aimed at understanding how diet influences cancer signaling.
We are looking for participants that want to contribute academically, socially, and intellectually to the ISP Community. Students who think outside-the-box, have collaborative natures, and will go on to be ambassadors of the ISP are encouraged to apply.
Participants must be at least 16 years of age and will have completed both biology and chemistry. All schools are welcome to support their students in their applications.

Summer Fellows Program
An 11-week laboratory research training course for students over 16 years old who have completed Chemistry and Biology is comprised of boot camp training in lab techniques in the context of a screen for nutrients that impact cancer signaling. Short lectures highlight conceptual skills including the cellular basis for cancer and the use of Drosophila in cancer research. Students advance to tackle challenges including experimental design and analysis while developing their own novel research projects aimed at defining how diet influences cancer signaling. more...
