Chicago EYES on Cancer would not be possible without our faculty mentors and their research teams, who dedicate precious time, wisdom, and laboratory resources to participants of the program. Our mentors are leaders across all areas of cancer research including basic, translational, clinical, and population-based. They are also experienced educators and committed role models. Visit our Students page to see who our mentors are and to link to information about the exciting work they do.
In addition to their faculty mentors, Chicago EYES on Cancer students work closely with peer mentors: University of Chicago undergraduate and graduate students pursuing careers in the biomedical field. Our peer mentors advise on everything from laboratory etiquette to poster formatting. Most importantly, they offer valuable insight on the opportunities and challenges awaiting program participants at the very next stage of their careers. Meet our 2018 peer mentors!
