HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT PROGRAM: 

GAME CHANGERS: EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES TRANSFORMING TOMORROW’S BIOLOGY

 

Technology and biomedical research have had a long-standing history of propelling each other forward. As technology advances, our understanding of biological processes deepens, leading to the development of novel tools and methods that are transforming the scientific landscape.

During April 17-19, 2018, for Whitehead Institute’s Spring Lecture Series for High School Students, Game Changers: Emerging Technologies Transforming Tomorrow’s Biology, we examined the interplay between research and technological innovation and its influence on our understanding of health and disease.

This special three-day program included presentations from pioneering scientists, hands-on workshops in laboratories at Whitehead Institute, visits to local biotech companies and research organizations, and lunches with young Whitehead scientists.

The program is open to students ages 14 and over. Admission requires parental consent. All registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis (up to 5 students per school). 

Registration is capped at 50 students and is expected to fill within 24 hours of registration opening.
