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 2012. Four of the students were supported by this grant and four of the students were supported by the second grant awarded in 2010. 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. One of the students graduated and has been accepted into the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Immunology at the University of Iowa. All of the remaining students are continuing their undergraduate education at Lincoln University.
