    Discovery U with Clinton High School 2017

    Another successful year for the Discovery U program and Clinton High School! These seven seniors traveled to UMMC one day a week to observe the research conducted in the UMMC laboratories. They learned about the role of a biomedical research scientist and the extensive career opportunities available in biomedical research. At the end of the year, they delivered a final semester presentation on the research conducted in one of the labs they observed. Thank you to Drs. Bengten, Coolen, Harmancey, Janorkar, LaMarca, Williams, and Wirschell, and the graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in these labs for giving the Clinton High School students an amazing experience and sparking their interest in a career in biomedical research!
