Look for the 2020 application later this fall!
CROY (Cancer Research Opportunities for Youth) is an initiative from the Yale Cancer Center meant to provide young people from our local communities with hands-on experience, mentoring, and collaboration within the cancer research pipeline. To qualify for this program, you must identify with a group that is underrepresented in cancer research and be willing to commit to working one summer in the cancer center.
The program provides aspiring young scientists from the New Haven community an opportunity to embed themselves within research teams engaged in all aspects of cancer research over the course of one summer. Eligible students will be matched with research teams working in projects related to Cancer Immunology, Cancer Prevention and Control, Developmental Therapeutics, Genomics, Genetics and Epigenetics, Radiobiology and Radiotherapy, or Viral and Other Infection-associated Cancers.
You will have the opportunity to learn about cancer research, develop research skills, and be mentored by some of the best cancer researchers in the world. This is a unique opportunity to take advantage of a world class research institution in your own backyard!
