What is METEOR?

METEOR v HS engages and supports high school students and STEM focused teachers through a summer program where they are embedded into translational science laboratories and clinical and behavioral research programs focused on rare and common childhood diseases and disorders. 

Through a mentored research experience, augmented with an inquiry-based curriculum, career and peer mentoring, college preparation and other experiences, our goal is to engage students to pursue careers in the biomedical sciences and ensure that teachers translate their summer experience into actionable classroom improvements.

Our program advances the translation of discovery from bench to bedside to community with a focus on training the next generation of biomedical researchers committed to improving the lives of children and families.
