High school and undergraduate students are valued members of our research and education community. Students participate in supervised and independent research projects under laboratory mentors as well as numerous experiential learning programs.
Biomedical Bootcamp is a one-week residential workshop for High School students held in mid-August.
High School and Undergraduate (REU and INBRE) Summer Research Fellowships support students working in the laboratories of resident or visiting scientists on hands-on research projects. During the 8-10 week residential mentored research experiences, summer fellowships also provide students with other educational opportunities, including an extensive scientific seminar program, professional development workshops, and dedicated residential life programs.
Short courses provide Maine undergraduates with hands-on biomedical research and biotechnology training. These courses are funded by the Maine INBRE network, a partnership of 13 Maine research and education institutions led by the MDI Biological Laboratory.
The High School Academic-Year Research Program is designed for local junior and senior high school students who demonstrate high achievement in science and mathematics and are interested in science oriented careers. Students work in faculty laboratories on a supervised research project. Academic credit may be available.
