Our METEOR v HS attracts, engages and supports high school students through a summer program where they are embedded into translational science laboratories and clinical and behavioral research programs focused on rare and common childhood disease and disorders.
Through this experiential mentored research experience, augmented with an inquiry-based curriculum, career and peer mentoring, college preparation and other experiences. METEOR stimulates students to pursue careers in the biomedical sciences by advances in the translation of discovery from bench to bedside to community which focus on improving the lives of children and families.
Over the years, students have been embedded with several mentorship teams including asthma, neonatology diabetes, nursing, bioengineering, cardiology, hematology, trauma teams and more. Learn more about our mentors
