Molecular Medicine Program for High School Students

Fifty of Indiana’s top high school students will gain special insights into the worlds of science, medicine and genetics during the Molecular Medicine In Action (MMIA) program at the Indiana University School of Medicine 7 and 8 March, reports the Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis News Bureau

The two-day successful program, now in its eleventh year, grants these select students the opportunity to work alongside some of the nation’s top researchers in the labs of the Herman B Wells Center for Pediatric Research, located on the IUPUI campus.

IU scientists will guide students through laboratories and workstations where they will learn how gene mutations are identified, how DNA is isolated, how to use the latest microscopic imaging techniques and other fundamentals of modern biomedical research.
