In addition to the opportunities for graduates and undergraduates to take part in paid internships the YES! Program has annual Cancer Biology & You Days. These days give high school students hands on experiences designing cancer research experiments and learning about cancer causes, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention as well as opportunities to learn about a variety of career options within cancer research and treatment. These days are great opportunities for high school students to interact with graduate students that are studying cancer research at UNMC and undergraduate students at UNO.
