Summer Science Research Program in Biomedical Research


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
High School Students

Description:
Through the Summer Science Research Program (SRP), high school students gain hands-on research experience in Rockefeller University laboratories over their summer break. Each SRP participant is mentored by a Rockefeller scientist who works side-by-side with the student to run experiments, develop, gather, and analyze data, and formulate results. The research that students conduct at Rockefeller is original and provides valuable information for other lab members and advances understanding of the field. By the end of the summer, many participants experience the exhilaration of discovering something that nobody previously knew.

Although participants spend most of the summer engaged in research, these experiences are supplemented with weekly classes in scientific reading and writing, a weekly seminar on critical thinking, and social events.
