> Dear Colleagues,
> 
> I am emailing you to invite you to direct your Undergraduates Students to the 2012 Summer Cancer Research Fellowship/Internship Program sponsored by the National Cancer Institute's Integrative Cancer Biology Program (NCI ICBP). Attached you will find a flyer and announcement that can be forwarded to those interested or posted at your Institutions.
> 
> The 2012 Summer Cancer Research Fellowship/Internship program provides a unique opportunity for eligible sophomore, junior or senior college students to engage in innovative approaches to cancer research through the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Integrative Cancer Biology Program (ICBP). The ICBP, composed of twelve multidisciplinary centers across the United States, focuses on the analysis of cancer as using systems biology approaches. Researchers within each ICBP center integrate experimental biology with mathematical and computational modeling to gain new insights into the biology and management of cancer.
> 
> Selected student participants will be paired with a faculty-mentor from a participating ICBP center, based on the student’s indicated research interests and prior class work. Through mentored research projects, faculty lectures, seminars, discussions, and other activities, the student will gain an understanding and appreciation of the major research questions currently under investigation, as well as the novel approaches being used within the ICBP centers.
> 
> The Program provides travel, stipend, and housing financial support and is open to students currently enrolled as sophomores, juniors or seniors in an accredited college or university located in the continental United States. A student must live in the United States and be a United States citizen or hold a permanent resident visa to be eligible.
