Engineering the Cell Summer Program

Engineering the Cell is a summer program in the Peyton lab, exclusively for high school women. If accepted into the program, you will spend five weeks in the lab, learning about how engineers can make a difference in cancer research, working directly with Dr. Peyton and graduate students, and learning how to do cutting edge science.  You will also receive a small stipend for your participation in the program.  There is no cost to you to participate in the program!  We hope the small stipend will make it possible for you to join us for five weeks. Lunch is provided every day of the program as well.


Applications for 2019 are now closed. Please stay tuned for information on the 2020 Program in the spring.

This program is generously sponsored by a grant awarded to the Peyton lab from the National Science Foundation.
