Jackson State University spring 2011 biology graduate Dorothy Ndishabandi has been selected to participate in a summer program at the Harvard Medical School Comprehensive Cancer Center with more than 1,000 researchers across seven Harvard institutions. In this prestigious program, students will learn from experts who are devoted to preventing, treating and curing cancer.
Each year, a number of promising students are selected for this unique opportunity to expand and extend their interest in basic and clinical cancer training. The program runs from June 2 to August 24, 2011. A stipend is provided to each participant.
“I want to learn about cancer as much as possible,” said Ndishabandi, a magna cum laude graduate who plans to go to medical school.
