2021 Virtual Major Trends in Modern Cancer Research Program


2021 Major Trends

Here at Memorial Sloan Kettering we are taking science to the next level and making it accessible to all!

We are bringing together some of MSK’s leading researchers and scientists to present and discuss their groundbreaking work with you!

If you are a high school or college student, teacher or instructor with an interest in the fields of science and/or biomedical research, please join our seminar, including an interactive Q&A after each presentation.

This event is a free community education program designed to engage and inspire the next generation of progressive researchers and scientists. MSK has a wide range of opportunities to volunteer at our labs, find mentors at MSK, and potentially join our research community.

Applications for 2022 HOPP Summer Student Program will open in December 2021.
