Discovery U with Clinton High School 2022

2022 was a successful year for the Discovery U program and Clinton High School! Three Clinton High students traveled to UMMC one day a week during the spring to observe research conducted in UMMC laboratories. They learned about the role of a biomedical research scientist and the extensive career opportunities available in biomedical research. We thank both Clinton High School and our research mentors for their participation!
