The UHCC CREATE Summer Internship program hosted a poster presentation on Friday, July 28, 022 for the CREATE students to showcase their summer projects. INBRE RAIN students Carper and Davis were able to participate in this program.
Annie Carper (Idaho INBRE) and Aurora Davis (Virginia INBRE) both participated in the first Hawaii Idea Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) – Regional Alliance of INBRE Networks (RAIN) Summer Exchange Program. The summer program is with the University of Hawai’i Cancer Center’s, Cancer Research Education, Advancement, Training and Empowerment (CREATE) Summer Internship Program. The CREATE Program provides hands-on summer research experiences and a multi-disciplinary curriculum to undergraduate students residing in the Islands of Hawaiʻi and the Pacific to reinforce their intent to graduate with a science degree and to consider a career to address health disparities and contribute to drug discovery.
