Abstract : We conducted an integrated training and educational program for improving the participation of HBCU undergraduate students in prostate cancer research. Dr. Feng Li and his team selected the following five undergraduate students per year: Brianne Jennings, Sequoyah Bennett, Leslie Harden, Duc Ha, Rachel Walker, Ciera Woodard, Starr Shands, Andrea Vincent, My 'Chelle Latta, and Danielle Irby in the STEM majors from Hampton University. These students had 8-week hands-on research training in laboratories of the PI and Co-Is (Mahato, Batra, Datta, and Garrison).
