Two Week Summer High School Program
Our two-week High School Science Enrichment Program is for talented high school students interested in learning about research, biotechnology and public health in the context of hepatitis B and liver cancer. They gain unique “hands on” experience at the HBF’s Baruch S. Blumberg Institute in state-of-the-art research labs under the guidance of senior scientists. Students are not allowed to work with any hazardous materials and are instructed (and supervised) on following appropriate research safety procedures.
In addition to lab research, students learn about public health issues in research, enjoy guest lectures, and attend professional seminars. They learn about the outreach and advocacy initiatives of the HBF from our dedicated public health professionals to gain an awareness of the global problem of hepatitis B and an appreciation of the importance of research in advancing our mission.
Students must have completed an Advanced Placement science course, and must be nominated by their high school science teacher in order to participate.
