K-12 Student Training Opportunities
HCI offers a number of research opportunities for high school students. Our NIH-funded PathMaker program provides a ten-week residential summer research program to talented rising high school seniors. This research-intensive program provides participants with hands-on lab experience and a variety of preprofessional development activities.
The PathMaker program is also available to middle and high school science teachers interested in learning more about cancer research and developing cancer-focused curriculum for their classrooms.
HCI also provides a two-week residential summer research program for rising high school sophomores and juniors from schools in rural Utah interested in exploring a career in biomedical research.
