Summer Students Programs at Webb-Waring Center

​​Introduction to Webb-Waring Undergraduate Summer Research Program

Webb-Waring Center has always had education as part of its mission. The new program is called the Webb-Waring/Colorado Undergraduate Summer Research Program or “WW/CUSP Program” for short.

This summer, the Webb-Waring Center will continue this significant tradition by hosting a research program to allow undergraduate students and opportunity to experience firsthand the technical aspects of work in a research laboratory.  Historically we have partnered with the Colorado Leaders in Mentors and Business (CLIMB) and the North Foundation to be able to complete this task.  However, our program will be expanding this year because we recently received an NIH Undergraduate Diversity Training Grant (NIH T23) Award with John E. Repine, MD as the Principal Investigator.  This award will support 2 students from Princeton University and 2 students from the University of Notre Dame on our campus for each of the next five years.

With the assistance of the Office of Diversity in Dean Richard Krugman’s office, the University of Colorado and the Anschutz Medical Campus faculty, Webb-Waring students will also be offered a wide range of educational, advising and clinically related experiences that should complement their training in research.   Our summer students will receive classes from numerous faculty members from through-out the University of Colorado, School of Medicine.  These experiences will familiarize students with a number of medical and research career paths which are open to them in the future.
