High School Students
Spectrum is creating a fully integrated, University-wide, clinical and translational research community that stimulates and educates all levels of trainees interested in investigational careers focused on human health.
Programs supported by Spectrum target the continuum of trainees from the high school level through junior faculty.
One of the most effective ways to increase and sustain the “pipeline” of translational and clinical research scientists is to stimulate interest in careers in the biological sciences and medicine early in life. For this reason, it is vital to offer meaningful exposures to the life sciences to high school students. Supporting programs for minority and low-income students is an especially critical pipeline issue.
Stanford provides several opportunities for high school students to gain exposure to clinical and translational research, including the following:
- Outreach Programs
- Stanford at the Tech
- Stanford Institutes of Medicine Summer Research Program
- Stanford Medical Youth Science Program
