2023 CREATE Summer Program Poster Presentations

The Cancer Research Education, Advancement, Training and Empowerment” (CREATE) program offers a yearly summer program for sophomores and juniors. The internship runs from June through July. The program provides hands-on research experience with a multi-disciplinary curriculum for students in Hawaii and the Pacific, with strong collaborations at the University of Hawaii and with the University of Guam. The curriculum includes multi-disciplinary seminars, workshops, participation in journal club, and contribution to manuscript preparation.  In addition, students receive training in lab safety, responsible conduct in research and human research protection. 

Students are paired with a faculty mentor to work in one of two UH Cancer Center research programs, Population Sciences in the Pacific or Cancer Biology.  Through strong mentorship, the goal is to guide students to achieve science degrees and to develop a future workforce to meet biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs to lower cancer incidence and mortality in the Pacific.

The program concludes with students presenting their projects through poster presentations at the UH Cancer Center’s Sullivan Center. To view poster presentations click on the link below.
