Ten Undergraduate College Students Try Their Hand at Solving an Unsolved Problem in Cancer

Cancer research has made great strides in developing new treatments for cancer patients. These treatments are usually less toxic and more effective than those in previous decades.  Usually, patients' lives are extended and sometimes cures are achieved. However, in the US alone there are 1.9 million new cancer cases and 609,369 cancer deaths predicted for 2022.  Since 2011 The National Cancer Institute has published several requests for applications to propose research projects that will address “Provocative Questions in Cancer.” There currently are no answers to these questions. This summer 10 Wood Hudson Undergraduate Research Education Program students from 6 Universities are trying their hand at writing a research proposal to answer a Provocative Question of their choice. We send them to do their task armed with background information from two textbooks, lectures from experienced scientists and physicians, research articles from the current scientific literature, and lots of “how to” technical videos on lab techniques found on the internet. By August, they will prepare a written research project proposal and then give a lecture on their proposed research.  Who knows what these brilliant young minds will unearth!
