Summer Research Opportunities

High School Biomedical Engineering & Science Research Program

The objective of the volunteer high school summer program is to expose high school students to academic research. Students who complete the program will come out with deepened skills in the biomedical sciences and a unique experience to share on their college applications. Check out this article to see how this experience enriched the scientific background of our participants!

Program Highlights

  • Jump right in- start performing experiments under the guidance of a skilled scientist from week 1
  • Immerse yourself in research- 5 hours a day, 5 days a week for 5 weeks
  • Professional guidance- students matched with a faculty mentor and attend a lecture series presented by faculty members
  • Make a difference- perform experiments to address an independent project that is related to your mentor’s research program
  • Build your communication skills - write a short report and present results at a mini-symposium attended by the research community, high school teachers from represented schools and family
