2022 Summer Intern Program

, by Jennifer K. Loukissas, M.P.P.

Some summer interns met virtually.

DCEG welcomed 36 summer interns hailing from 12 states and the District of Columbia. For the first time, the program was hybrid, allowing some to participate virtually while others came in person to NCI Shady Grove. Support was provided by Diane Wigfield, program manager in the Office of Education, the NCI Training Directors, and 49 DCEG staff, including investigators, staff scientists, and trainees, who served as mentors.  

Every branch and the Trans-Divisional Research Program hosted interns. In addition to conducting research, the interns benefited from activities including:

Others gathered in-person at the ice cream social.

In addition, they enjoyed career development opportunities and social activities including: 

  • Young Investigator Panel including Rachel Hendricks, B.S., Sairah Khan, M.P.H., Dr. Jessica Gorzelitz, and Dr. Blechter    
  • Poster design workshop delivered by Maura Kate Costello on the Communications Team 
  • Pizza party and ice cream social organized by Ms. Hendricks, and Jaimie Z. Shing, Ph.D., M.P.H.
