Twelve high school students have joined the ranks of researchers working in labs affiliated with Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology this summer.
Nine of the students come to Hopkins via the Summer Academic Research Experience program (SARE), which pairs selected academically inclined students who attend Baltimore area schools, such as the SEED School of Maryland, with laboratory mentors at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. INBT has administered this program since 2009. Its funding comes from a variety of sources including, INBT, the Family League of Baltimore and private grants and donations.
Three of the students have joined INBT labs through a supplement to the National Science Foundation’s REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program and these students have been placed in INBT affiliated laboratories on the Homewood campus of the University. This program is new to the Institute and students selected had applied directly to NSF via school recommendations. Students in this program come from outside the Baltimore area and live on campus in student housing.
INBT is dedicated to providing educational outreach opportunities to a variety of populations, especially students living in and around the Johns Hopkins University campuses.
