High School Program in Biomedical Research

In light of continuing concerns due to COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Wistar’s High School Summer Fellowship  Program again in 2021. We appreciate your interest during this challenging time and hope to provide opportunities for those interested in the coming year.

Wistar’s High School Program provides two levels of engagement: 

  • High schools may arrange to bring classes of students to the Institute for tours, guest lectures and/or hands-on activities in our new, state-of the-art training lab. 
  • Students may also apply for our Summer Fellowship Program where they learn biomedical laboratory techniques through curriculum based on real Wistar science. Students have the opportunity to interact with Wistar scientists and increase their network of mentors. Students are also introduced to valuable research skills including searching and reading scientific literature and effective science communication.
