The Yale Summer Science Research Institute (SSRI) is a program that connects highly qualified New Haven high school students with Yale laboratories for summer research experiences. See additional information about our organization.
CROY (Cancer Research Opportunities for Youth)
CROY (Cancer Research Opportunities for Youth) is an initiative 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 willing to commit to working two summers in the cancer center. In general, this refers to individuals who are Hispanic/Latino, Black or African American. However, other students may also qualify for this program.
The program will provide 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 2 summers. 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 Cancer Microbiology. 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!
