2021 BioCanRx Summer Studentships
BioCanRx Summer Studentships provide funding for undergraduate and college students to gain work experience in the Canadian cancer biotherapeutics research sector.

This funding opportunity is open to BioCanRx network investigators and other Canadian-based investigators researching cancer immunotherapy. Note – at the time of the application deadline, students must have found an investigator to work with.
