The Ted R. Lilley Continuing Umbrella of Research Education (CURE) Program is a research internship program supported by the Knight Cancer Institute and the Center for Diversity and Inclusion. It offers hands-on research experiences to Portland-area high school students who excel academically and come from socially or economically disadvantaged backgrounds. The goal of this program is to address the issue of health equity by increasing participation of underserved and underrepresented minorities in biomedical research and other health-related fields.
