• Biology Research & Cell Culture Boot Camp

     

    Course Descriptions

     

    **PLEASE NOTE** Although Dr. Smith will not be instructing this summer, her students are still welcome to attend either program and work with one of the other mentors.

     

    Biology Research offers students in the experimentation phase of their projects a great opportunity to continue their research in a low stress environment, free of concerns of attending classes, preparing homework, taking exams, or any of the many other challenges during the school year. 

    • To participate, you must have a completed research plan, be able to culture cells independently, and your required materials have already arrived. Speak to your mentor prior to registering.

    • Before attending, you should also have a plan for what you intend to accomplish each week. 

    • Seating is VERY limited; therefore, rising seniors (class of 2024) who are applying to the Regeneron Science Talent Search will have priority in research registration.

    Cell Culture Boot Camp is designed for students who are still in the development phase of their project and have not yet been trained in cell culture techniques. This is a 2-week intensive course on the principles and practice of working with cells in culture, preparing solutions, treating cells and performing assays. Two identical sessions will be offered. 

    • To participate, you must have completed at least one trimester of the midday, independent ~Cell Biology Research elective (NOT the period 9 Research in Cell Biology elective) with one of the mentor teachers. Speak to your mentor prior to registering.
