The High School Student Volunteer Program is an on-going program that allows highly motivated high school students to participate in scientific research.
In the fall of each academic year, a letter is sent to the Chairperson of the Biology Department, Advanced Placement or Honors Biology Teacher, and Principal of each Phoenix area high school, requesting that two students be nominated from their school. Teachers are to select a maximum of two students from their school who they feel are highly motivated and would benefit from this laboratory experience.
Students are placed in a number of laboratories at Barrow Neurological Institute, St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, the Mayo Clinic-Scottsdale, Arizona State University, and Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen). Applications are reviewed by mentors from all of these institutions. Students are notified no later than November 15th.
The Student Research program is administered by the faculty and staff of the Neurology Research Laboratory at Barrow Neurological Institute® as part of The Scientific Enrichment Program for Students.
