For the past four years, students in the Rhodes-St. Jude International Summer Plus Program have spent their summers conducting clinical research and shadowing pharmacists and physicians at Calvo Mackenna Children’s Hospital in Santiago, Chile. The students then perform clinical research with mentors during the ensuing academic year.

Matthew Cannavo ’15 (neuroscience ) and Sierra Thompson ’15 (biology) are featured in the current issue of Promise, a publication of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, about their experiences. View the article.

Also participating in the program this summer are Lars Monia ’15 (physics) and Sarah Laves ’15 (biochemistry). Past participants are now in medical school.
