The Larry & Diana Lulofs Memorial Kidney Cancer Research Internship
The Larry and Diana Lulofs Memorial Kidney Cancer Research Internship is a paid research internship in memory of Larry Lulofs, who died of kidney cancer in 2011. Larry was a Stanford alumnus (class of 1971), as well as a successful attorney, and lifelong intellectual and community servant. In his honor, the Larry Lulofs Memorial Kidney Cancer Research Internship was created to provide an opportunity for a Stanford undergraduate interested in pursuing a career in biomedical research or medicine to receive 6 months of paid research and medical shadowing, in order to improve treatments for kidney cancer, and facilitate the intern achieving his or her career goals.
Larry’s wife, Diana, was one of the major benefactors for the internship program, and was instrumental to the program’s creation. Unfortunately, Diana lost her own battle with lung cancer in February 2017. Following her death, the name of the internship was changed to the Larry and Diana Lulofs Memorial Kidney Cancer Research Internship, in honor of these two remarkable individuals.This internship is intended to inspire future physicians and scientists to pursue an interest in kidney cancer that will lead to improved treatments, while also providing invaluable experience interacting with physicians and patients, working in a hospital environment, and conducting novel translational research experiments in a laboratory.
