High School Outreach Program

This motivational program is designed to offer a basic understanding of stem cell research and is open to all Los Angeles-area high school students.

The High School Outreach Program Includes:


High School Lectures

Throughout the school year, the institute's postdoctoral fellows and researchers give lectures during a scheduled science class. Lectures introduce students to the world of regenerative medicine and current stem cell research and technology, which exposes them to careers in science. We are currently serving high schools within 10 miles of Cedars-Sinai and are eager to expand our lecture outreach to other communities, where possible.

High School Research Week

Junior and senior-year high school students are invited to apply for Research Week held within the institute's laboratories. Under direct supervision, students collaborate within project based teams, where they receive hands-on learning opportunities with research tools and techniques. Students attend lectures presented by the institute's research scientists and staff, and the students present their project results on the last day of Research Week.
