With our partners, we are developing faster and less expensive ways of turning laboratory discoveries into new diagnostic tests and treatments for cancer and AIDS.
When Amy Stull, a 2000 graduate of Walkersville High School, began working in a laboratory at the National Cancer
Institute (NCI) at Frederick, she likely did not know the role NCI would play in her career.
Stull started at NCI as a Werner H. Kirsten (WHK) student intern after her junior year of high school, working
in a lab as she prepared for a career in chemical engineering.

The NCI at Frederick has about 3,000 government and contractor employees with a wide range
of expertise in basic, translational, and preclinical research and development in
cancer and AIDS.
