Base Pair receives MAPE partnership award

It was the second time in its 21-year history that the Base Pair program received the recognition.

Initiated in 1992, Base Pair is a biomedical research mentorship program that pairs Medical Center faculty with high school students and educators from the Jackson Public School District. Base Pair allows each student to experience the scientific field in a "hands-on" manner under the guidance and supervision of a qualified instructor who is a researcher at UMMC.

Base Pair provides academic credit towards graduation, career orientation and advanced laboratory training in the biomedical sciences.
