Minors in Research

The Minors in Research initiative is a subset of the Research Internship Program which provides high school students enrolled in the 11th grade (ages 16-18) with an overview of biomedical research, access to faculty members as mentors and an opportunity to develop and enhance skills for greater college and career readiness.
