Now Accepting iCURE Applications for 2019

, by CRCHD

The Intramural Continuing Umbrella of Research Experiences  (iCURE) program is now accepting applications for Fall 2019 research experiences!

Now in its second year, iCURE provides mentored research experiences for qualified students and scientists in the multidisciplinary research environment of the NCI Intramural Research Program (IRP). All research is conducted at the NCI in Maryland.

The program offers:

  • One year awards to post-baccalaureate individuals
  • Two-year awards to graduate students
  • Three year awards to postdoctoral fellows
  • Professional development and career support

iCURE particularly encourages the participation of individuals from underrepresented populations, and aims to further NCI’s interest in diversity. An iCURE scholar must be a citizen, non-citizen national, or legal permanent resident of the United States.

For detailed information about eligibility and applying, please visit the iCURE web page. Applications are due April 17, 2019.

Applications will be reviewed in two phases and will include at least two interviews with iCURE program staff and potential mentors. 

iCURE program application timeline for Fiscal Year 2024

iCURE is a partnership between the NCI Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities (CRCHD) and the NCI IRP, which includes the Center for Cancer Research (CCR) and the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG).

iCURE is an extension of the highly successful Continuing Umbrella of Research Experiences (CURE) program which helps support the career progress of its scholars toward research independence, as well as foster and sustain diversity in the biomedical research pipeline.

The inaugural iCURE cohort includes 15 current iCURE scholars located at the three NCI campuses in Bethesda, Rockville, and Frederick, Maryland.
