UMaryland-Baltimore Summer Programs

High School Biomedical Research Summer Program
The High School Biomedical Research Summer Program.  Norbert R.  Myslinski, Department of Biomedical Sciences, The University of Maryland, Baltimore, MD.

The goal of the High School Biomedical Research Summer Program is to capture their hearts and minds of young men and women and inspire them to pursue careers in biomedical fields.  Continuously funded since 1988, it provides

full-time summer training for high school students and their teachers.  The program's primary focus is the student-scientist relationship.  Each student

is matched with a different research scientist at the University of Maryland, Baltimore.  Students work in laboratories of the Schools of

Dentistry, Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing and the Biotechnology and Psychiatric Institutes.  The Program is significantly different from other high school scholastic experiences.  Training is intense and focused, in a highly scientific environment, concentrating on scientific methods, scientific writing & oral communication.  While the students spend most of their time working on a particular scientific project, they spend approximately 40% of their time on other activities that broaden their experience.  Group activities include science seminars, career seminars, field trips, survival skills workshops, student presentations, bioethical debates, humanitarian activities, group competitions and classes on lab safety, biomedical

informatics, scientific methods, ethical conduct and communicating scientific data.  Graduation Day involves oral and poster presentations and

awards.  Eighty-two Maryland high schools and 84 mentors have participated.

Participants have won many local, state and national awards.  The top neuroscience student is invited each year to present his poster at the

meeting of the Baltimore Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience.  (Supported in part by federal and state grants.)
