(#503) Transitional Cancer Research
For driven high school/undergraduate students, SkoolMentor is offering a unique 8 week opportunity to conduct remote research in Transitional cancer research with a research scientist affiliated with the University of California, Los Angeles. The Mentor has extensive research experience in cancer biology, cancer epigenetics and Transitional research.
The topics of research could be studying the role of sex differences in driving treatment resistance in brain cancer using patient data from publicly available databases. Students will develop an understanding of dysregulated pathways and genes in brain cancer, and how sex as a biological variable drives brain cancer treatment resistance.
The researcher has served as a mentor for undergraduate students and graduate students and helped them present their projects at university symposiums and Cancer research meetings. The mentor can assist students to create a poster/presentation to be presented at science fairs and scientific conferences.
This is an excellent opportunity for students who are curious, driven, want to contribute to patient-oriented research and wish to learn cutting-edge web-based tools in cancer research.
Opportunities such as these are also a great way for students to showcase the passion for STEM and stand out in college applications.
The mentoring happens once a week for 8 weeks and is for 1 hour duration.
The students need to put in about 5-6 hours per week on their own doing the research.
