Advanced Pre-College Biomedical Summer Program (3 weeks)

This is one of our most sought after programs as it provides a wide overview of different programs in a comprehensive way.

Curriculum

This course is designed to expose aspects of biomedical sciences under rapid development. This course provides a unique opportunity to the medical school- aspirants to learn and prime for the path forward to pre-med classes during their undergraduate studies.
  • Molecular cell biology & Cancer biology
  • Genetics, Data Science & Bioinformatics
  • Immunology & Immunotherapy
Every week, course work focuses on one of the above-mentioned subjects. Lectures and course work are diligently prepared to provide basics and thereby delve into the complexities of the diseases and ongoing research. Thereby we bridge and provide exposure to the current direction of medical practice and research. This unique course also provides students an appreciation of how genetics, cell behavior, and immune system orchestrate the state of well-being or disease condition.

Capstone Project

In the last week of the course, students work on a topic of their choosing from any of the 3 topics taught in the course. Some highly motivated students have encompassed the spirit of the system into their project and have covered genetic, molecular and immunological aspects of various diseases. Our instructors work with students to help them identify relevant scientific literature to form valid hypotheses. We provide a wide range of resources via our unique and robust infrastructure where students can collaborate and work on their projects. We train our students in creative approaches to scientifically validate their hypothesis and arrive at a final conclusion.

Brainstorm sessions for research aspirants

At the end of the each day, our instructors meet with groups to brainstorm their approach, hypothesis and possible path forward to successfully complete their project and have a poster/talk/white paper.
