Due to COVID-19, HOPP will not be hosting a Summer Student Program this year. Instead, it will offer a virtual Summer Research Seminar Series from July to August 2020.

Each webinar consists of a one-hour lecture via Zoom, from 2:00 to 3:00 pm up to three times a week, which will be webcast and recorded. Though the seminars are geared toward high school students, we welcome all interested to attend.

For any questions or to register for a session, please reach out to the HOPP Summer Student Program at HOPPSummerProgram@mskcc.org or 646-888-2013.
