Minors in Research
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Minors in Research Program has been canceled. Instead of on-campus activities, we are excited to offer a virtual research week in July. Applicants who applied to the Minors in Research Program will receive additional information regarding the registration process.
The Minors in Research initiative is a subset of the Research Internship Program which provides high school students enrolled in the 11th grade (ages 16-18) with an overview of biomedical research, access to faculty members as mentors and an opportunity to develop and enhance skills for greater college and career readiness.
There are a limited number of paid summer internships funded by Cedars-Sinai available to local high school students currently enrolled in 11th grade (ages 16–18).
From June 22 to Aug. 7, 2020, participants will be mentored by a Cedars-Sinai faculty member and exposed to a range of leading-edge technology in multiple disciplines and projects. Students participate a maximum of 40 hours a week.
Research internship projects will provide broad exposure to research fundamentals and cover a wide range of topics which may include:
- Elements of the scientific process and project design
- Basic biomedical research concepts and techniques
- Overview and understanding of scholarly literature
- Research discussions and presentation skills (lab meetings, journal clubs, etc.)
- Safety regulations and requirements for laboratory and research work
- Principles and operations of academic research
How to Apply
Late applications or applications missing documents will not be considered.
Applicants accepted to the summer program must attend a mandatory orientation on June 22 and June 23, 2020.
