Abstract:

The Historically Black Colleges and Universities HBCU Summer Research Training Program accepted a total of 8 students from Lincoln University for the eight-week session during the summer of 2009. One student canceled at the last minute, leaving 7 students in the program. Three of the students were supported by the original grant, awarded in 2006, and four of the students were supported by the second grant, which was awarded in 2007. Each student was assigned to the laboratory of a participating mentor and also was paired with a member of the mentors laboratory. This laboratory member assisted with the day-to-day aspects of the research project. During the summer the students worked diligently on their research projects, 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 Michigan. At the end of the summer session, the students presented a poster of the research results from their summer experience. They also presented the results of their research at Lincoln University in the fall.
