The George Washington University (GW) School of Medicine and Health Sciences, in partnership with the GW Cancer Center, has launched a new summer program to advance cancer research through enhancing diversity in the field. The program is open to undergraduate students and is called the GW Summer Program Advancing Research on Cancer (GW-SPARC).
“GW-SPARC will not only expose participants to cutting-edge research and contemporary cancer research techniques, but will also help foster understanding of health disparities and the impact of cancer in different communities,” said Alison Hall, PhD, associate dean for research workforce development at the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences. “Most importantly, this program will help prepare diverse students for research careers, leading to discoveries that will improve our futures.”
