USC Junior Fellows


The USC Center for Applied Molecular Medicine (CAMM) and the Westside Cancer Center (WCC) of USC have developed a unique program to foster scientific achievement for rising high school seniors interested in clinical or research oncology. We believe that passion, coupled to outstanding aptitude, are the hallmarks for success. This program fosters scientific education by incorporating hands-on experimentation in a collaborative environment.



The application consists of an essay and a copy of the student’s transcript. The essay should be used as a forum to convey the student’s passion for science/medicine. We will be accepting applications from January 29th through April 5th, 2018. The program begins on June 13th and requires the students to commit 6 hours a day until June 29th at the Health Science Campus of USC. Please contact Dr. Kian Kani (kani@usc.edu) for more information. ONLINE APPLICATIONS CAN BE COMPLETED HERE: www.BeARebel.org/junior-fellows-application



The CAMM Jr. Fellows are presented with one challenge – how to determine which drug is bested suited (most effective) for their mock patient. During this process, the Fellows will become familiar with one of the most important aspects of medicine which currently confronts clinical and research oncologists. Resolution of this challenge will require integration of science, mathematics and technology. The program culminates with a discussion of their findings with Dr. David Agus at the Westside Cancer Center.
