High school upperclassmen from diverse backgrounds perform basic research with Stanford faculty, postdoctoral fellows, undergraduates and researchers on a medically oriented project. Students work with a mentor from one of five institutes: cancer biology, stem cell biology, neuroscience, immunology or cardiovascular medicine. In addition to full-time lab work, interns attend institute-specific lectures, safety training sessions and field trips to biotech firms. A poster session at the conclusion of the program enables participants to present their findings. Participants have been recognized by the Intel Science Talent Search and the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology.
