University of Chicago Summer Session RESEARCH IN THE BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES (RIBS)

February 26, 2020

Dates: June 22 - July 16, 2020

Costs: $12,200

Eligibility: Current high school sophomores and juniors. Students must complete one year of high school biology by the start of the program. This course is the most rigorous of the pre-college offerings in Biology, requiring that students have a demonstrated passion for science, with strong performances in high school biology, math, and chemistry (honors or advanced level preferred if available).

Furthering the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, discovering how to preserve blood, laying the mathematical foundations for the theory of genetic evolution—the University of Chicago Biological Sciences Division is a leader in these and in many other areas of research. This summer, learn the techniques used in cutting-edge biological research and work in lab facilities at a premier research university.

March 16, 2020

Dates: June 21- August 1, 2020

Cost: $6,500

Eligibility: The UC Davis Young Scholars Program requires all participants to be at least 16 years of age by the first day of the program but not 18 years of age before the end of the program.

The major goal of the UC Davis - Young Scholars Program is to expose and engage forty high achieving and high potential high school students in a variety of research experiences within the fields of the biological, agricultural, environmental and natural sciences. To be eligible to apply a student must be currently enrolled as a sophomore or junior in high school.

March 20, 2020

Dates: June 21 - August 15, 2020

Costs: $3,600

Eligibility: Students be at least 14 years of age on the program start date of June 8, 2020 (at least 16 years of age for certain research project placements) and currently enrolled in high school. While many SIP interns are “rising seniors” (in the summer between junior and senior year), this is not a requirement.

The Science Internship Program provides motivated, advanced students with a unique opportunity to work and learn at a premier research institution.

SIP is a summer-long (10 week) research internship program for high school students in STEM fields. UCSC faculty, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers provide one-on-one mentoring of these high-school interns. The research projects are real in that they are not made up just for the high-school students; instead students are inserted into existing research projects here at UCSC.

This course will draw in a range of topics in biology, medicine, history, technology, and bioinformatics as it asks students to confront one of the most pressing questions in contemporary medicine: how can we defeat cancer? Students will develop familiarity with the fundamentals of cancer biology, research, and treatment even as they explore hot topics in oncology, including oncogenes, tumor suppressors, and cancer-causing viruses.
