They also will participate in shadowing opportunities, field trips to local scientific activities and presentations by guest speakers. The three sites participating in the UPCI Summer Academy are the Hillman Cancer Center in Shadyside, the Department of Biomedical Informatics and Computational and Systems Biology in Oakland and the Magee-Womens Research Institute in Oakland. Other summer programs, including those at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC and the Pittsburgh Tissue Engineering Initiative, also will be presented, and representatives will be available.
