Hahn-Pflugger Brain Cancer Scholars Program

The Hahn-Pflugger Brain Cancer Scholars Program is designed to provide undergraduates at Notre Dame with a unique immersion into brain cancer research.  Over the course of the summer, research interns will be introduced to basic laboratory techniques commonly used in medical research labs throughout the world, observe the medical and surgical care of cancer patients, and complete a primary research project of their own.  No prior research experience is required.  Applicants currently in their junior year of undergraduate studies or beyond who intend to pursue medical school training or primary medical research based graduate programs are encouraged to apply.

Last year, Hahn-Pflugger fellows were placed at the Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute at the University of Pennsylvania and the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins University.

The deadline for all application submissions is January 27, 2023. Finalists for the positions will be notified by February 3, 2023, and virtual interviews will be planned in February 2023 according to each student’s availability.
