West Virginia Health Sciences Center was recently awarded an 11 million dollar grant to study the effects of surrounding cells and tissue on tumor development. This grant is to support the newly founded Tumor Microenvironment (TME) Center for Biomedical Research Excellence.
The funding provides the opportunity for up to five undergraduate students to work in various labs focused on the microenvironment surrounding different cancers. This opportunity will be a paid internship. Additional positions may be available that can be used for completion of Honors credit or an Honors thesis without pay. Contact Dr. Paul Lockman at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to express interest in the opportunity.
