Sci-High program nurtures scientific interest in exceptional students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The Sci-High program will identify talented students from disadvantaged backgrounds who show an aptitude for science and provide them with mentoring and training that will help them to advance toward biomedical careers. In the Chicagoland area, this is of particular relevance due to a high prevalence of kidney disease in disadvantaged populations. The program will also enhance public awareness of the burden of kidney disease and activities of the center, as visits and Sci-High events will be captured on social media.
We kicked our inaugural program in the Summer 2019. Read about how it went here.
