The Summer Student Research Program (SSRP) offers high school and college students a unique opportunity to conduct educational research in diverse biomedical science fields during the summer months. Students participate in mentored, independent research projects either in our state-of-the-art research laboratories, or working with physicians to impact patient care or the outcome of treatment. Students also attend a comprehensive course featuring topics including bioethics, animal use in biomedical science and scientific presentation skills, and attend lectures presented by distinguished guest scientists and faculty members.
