Indigenous Summer Studentships
Excerpt from the Press Release:
The goal of the BioCanRx Indigenous Student Summer InternshipProgram is to provide Indigenous undergraduate university or college students with meaningful hands-on research or policy experience in the area of cancer. This is accomplished through internships with research groups at post-secondary institutions across Canada or with partnering organization, Canadian Partnership Against Cancer. Although BioCanRx’s mandate focuses on cancer immunotherapy and biotherapeutics, the BioCanRx Indigenous Student Summer Internshipis open to any cancer-related research or policy-related work including that with an Indigenous-oriented framework, such as Indigenous traditional knowledge. An additional intent of this program is to promote and strengthen Indigenous students’ participation in cancer research and policy and careers by providing networking, mentorship, and hands-on, practical experience opportunities.
