Abstract:

The HBCU Summer Research Training Program accepted six students from Lincoln University for the eight week session in the summer of 2006. Five of the students were supported by the DOD grant and an additional student was supported by a collaborating faculty member at the University of Iowa. Each student was assigned to a laboratory of a participating mentor and also paired with a member of the mentors laboratory. This laboratory member assisted with day to day aspects of the research project. During the summer the students worked diligently on their research project, participated in meetings of the mentors laboratory, attended workshops and seminars associated with our and other summer programs, and attended a special course in prostate cancer. We integrated the Lincoln students into social programs held throughout the campus for summer interns and they attended and participated in the CIC Conference at the University of Illinois. At the end of the summer session the students presented a poster of the research results from the summer experience. They also presented the results of their research in the fall at Lincoln University and many presented at a national meeting in Florida during the fallwinter of 2006. All of the students have applied to graduate programs for the fall of 2007.
