Stem Cell Summer Research Experiences

Through this training program, 50 high school students from backgrounds underrepresented in the sciences will pursue summer research projects in stem cell biology at a major research university. Students will spend the bulk of their summer conducting research under the guidance of a mentor scientist. To prepare them for success in the program, they will […]

Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine- High School Summer Research Internship

The proposed research internship will strengthen the future of stem cell research in California by providing California high school students the exciting opportunity to experience hands-on research in various areas within stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. The internship aims to recruit a diverse group of participants from underrepresented ethnicities and/or low socioeconomic backgrounds. Participating […]

Internship at a Cutting Edge CIRM-funded Stem Cell Research Facility

The CIRM Accelerate Regenerative Medicine Knowledge (SPARK) Program is a motivating, stimulating and rewarding experience encouraging young people from the State of California to enter the field of stem cell biology and research. This has been proven in our Stem Cell Program by ten years of summer internships, starting with a pilot program conducted with […]

Exposing Students to Regenerative Medicine (ExStRM)

Although there have been an increase in the research training opportunities available to high school students, there is still the need not only to equip youth with the scientific skill set to critically understand, explore, and engage with the community but also to motivate students especially underrepresented minority students to become interested in a research […]

Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Summer Internships for High School Students from Under-Served Communities

This proposal is for a summer internship program that provides laboratory research experience in regenerative medicine and stem cell biology to high school students from populations that are traditionally under-represented in biomedical science careers. Rising seniors from under-served groups will be placed (8-12 students per year) in paid internships for the summer, conducting original research under […]

Summer Program To Accelerate Regenerative Medicine Knowledge (SPARK)

This proposal seeks to create a Summer Program To Accelerate Regenerative Medicine Knowledge (SPARK), which will provide an engaging educational experience for California high school students who come from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds. Our program strives to create a future biomedical workforce in regenerative medicine which represents the diversity of the state of California. We will […]

Stem Cells & STEM Education – a Summer Internship Program for California High School Students

We propose a program that removes the barriers for disadvantaged California high school students to receive mentored, hands-on learning experiences in stem cell biology at a world-class research institute with an esteemed track-record of educating the next generation of scientists, including at the high school level & from under-represented minority (URM) & socioeconomically-challenged backgrounds. Access […]

Train, Educate, and Accelerate Mastery of Stem cell research (TEAMS) program

It is well documented that trainees from groups underrepresented in the STEM fields leave the research workforce pipeline, with many progressively losing interest in research-intensive careers. To overcome this, we will leverage our institution’s long-standing success in education and training toward engaging underrepresented individuals in the field of regenerative medicine. The Train, Educate, and Accelerate […]

Supporting Underrepresented STudents Adapting to Change: Summer Program to Accelerate Regenerative Medicine Knowledge (SUSTAIN a SPARK)

UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland (BCH-Oakland) is a non-profit hospital affiliated with UCSF but located in Oakland, CA in one of the most socially and ethnically diverse areas of the country. Since 1981, the Summer Student Research Program (SSRP) at BCH-Oakland has provided research training to over 1000 high school and undergraduate students from groups […]

Mentored High School Summer Research Program

The CIRM SPARK program will be an intensive research experience for ten local high school students. This summer research training will be a prodigious addition to our existing high school outreach program, which has a track record of over 5 years of success in educating students from diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds, including classroom lectures, […]
