Durant native, Summer Simeroth was one of eight students recently selected to a competitive summer program working in cancer research laboratories at the Stephenson Cancer Center at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.
The Cancer Undergraduate Research Experience (CURE) Program provides students experience working on nationally funded research projects under the mentorship of senior faculty leaders. This experience prepares students for careers in the field of cancer research and medicine.
At the completion of the eight-week program, students engage in a poster presentation of their research to gain experience in organizing, interpreting, and discussing their research results.
Simeroth is currently attending the University of Oklahoma and pursuing a major in Biology.
The Program is now entering its eighth year and has mentored more than 70 undergraduate students. To apply for the CURE Program, you must meet certain eligibility criteria including: enrolled as an undergraduate student with between 60 and 100 credit hours and the ability to commit to the programs entire eight-week time frame.
