Abstract:

The HBCU Summer Research Training Program accepted a total of 28 students from Lincoln University for the eight week session during the summers of 2007 through 2010. Fourteen of the students were supported by this grant and fourteen of the students were supported by other grants awarded in 2006 and 2009. Each student was assigned to a laboratory of a participating mentor and also paired with a member of the mentor s 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 mentor s 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 Conferences at Purdue University, Michigan State University, University of Michigan, and Ohio State University. At the end of the summer sessions the students presented a poster of the research results from the summer experience. They also presented their results of their research in the fall at Lincoln University and at the 2007 and 2011 IMPaCT conferences. Sixty eight percent of the students that graduated from Lincoln have participated in postgraduate programs.
