Summer Student Research Program


Talented high school and college students from diverse backgrounds are placed into local clinics and basic science labs to participate in active biomedical research projects. This summer program provides a one-on-one mentorship with health care providers and researchers, along with access to unique workshops, seminars, trainings, simulations, and networking opportunities. The program culminates in a formal research symposium in which each student presents their project findings to the scientific community, many of which continue on as future grants, publications, and advances in healthcare.
