The trainees of the National Cancer Institute are committed to encouraging youth in the community to get interested in science. Partners benefit from having researchers who are participating in cutting edge research assist in their classrooms.  We seek to help you fulfill your science needs, whether it be assistance with labs, providing workshops, or career guidance.
