Biomedical Research Academy

  • Top Biomedical Research Academy
    • Biomedical Research Academy:  Taught by members of Penn's Department of Biology and other regional biology teachers, the goal of this program is to introduce you to the experimental basis of biology, including relevance to disease. The focus of the program will be on how we know what we know. Daily morning lectures and discussions on the cellular, molecular and genetic aspects of biology will be followed on some days by guest lectures from scientists and clinicians from Penn’s Department of Biology and from the Penn Medical School. Afternoons will be spent in the laboratory with hands-on experiments that introduce you to the tools and techniques used in biomedical research labs. You will also participate in a small group “journal club” where you will learn to read primary scientific literature on a current topic of interest.

      Prerequisites: One year of high school Biology is required for application. One year of high school Chemistry is strongly advised.

      Program Director: Dr. Linda Robinson, Ph.D.

      $500 Supplemental lab fee.
