More about Discovery To Cure High School Internship Program.

Created by Dr. Mor in 2003 ,with the goal of exposing students from local schools to Yale's biomedical laboratories to open their minds to pursue career opportunities in science and medicine.  This program is highly competitive (less than 12% accepted) .  Past interns have presented their research work at science fairs, including the Connecticut Junior Science and Humanities Symposium at UCONN, the National JSHS, Pfizer Life Science Award, Connecticut State Science Fair, International Science and Engineering Fair and Siemens Westinghouse Science and Technology Competition. Approximately 20% of the students have published their finds in peer-reviewed scientific journals.  To date over 300 high school students, undergraduates and teachers have successfully completed the program.
