 Cancer Research Experience for Undergraduates

Through the University of Colorado Cancer Center's Cancer Research Experience for Undergraduates (CREU), every summer 35 to 40 college undergraduate students and a few advanced high school students are given the opportunity to spend ten weeks in our laboratories at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, University of Colorado Boulder and other Denver-area health care institutions.

The goal of the program is to engage scientific curiosity in the next generation of scientists, challenging qualified college undergraduates and exceptionally gifted high school students to consider a cancer-related career in the future.
