Abstract:

The HBCU Summer Research Training Program accepted a total of 8 students from Lincoln University for the eight week session during the summer of 2011. One student canceled at the last moment for personal reasons. Four of the students were supported by this grant and three of the students were supported by the second grant awarded in 2011. 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. At the end of the summer sessions 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. All of the students are continuing their undergraduate education at Lincoln University.
