Engineering the Cell Summer Program

Due to COVID-19, the ETC Program is postponed until 2021.

Engineering the Cell is a summer program in the Peyton lab, exclusively for high school womxn. 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. There is no cost to you to participate in the program - in fact you will receive a small stipend as part of your participation. Lunch is provided every day of the program as well, in addition to your stipend. 

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