Current Pike students Sarah Shado, Melanie Man, Brionna Tolbert and Kelsie Kimbrough along with Pike graduates Ariana Black (Tuskegee University) and Jordan Lyles-Holly (Hampton University) have been selected to participate in the 2018 Simon Summer Research Program (SRP). The program is designed to increase the number of high school and undergraduate students from underrepresented populations pursuing biomedical and behavioral science careers by providing positive and meaningful firsthand exposure to these fields. During the eight-week program, the students will be paired with a mentor and work on laboratory-based, computer-based and clinical research projects. At the end of the program, the students will present their findings as well as give an oral presentation. Former Pike student Amanuel Kibrom who is currently faculty in the Department of Biochemistry at the Duke University School of Medicine participated in the Simon Cancer Center Summer Research Program during the 2012 summer.
