Summer Science Institute is a multi-summer research experience for high school students interested in learning what it is like to do “real” science. During the first month in Fundamentals of Cellular and Molecular Biology (formerly Student BioTeach), students are offered a variety of short, two- to three-day, introductory molecular biology experiments. The following month in Advanced Principles of Biology and Neurobiology (formerly ChemTeach), these same students are invited back to participate in extended, five- to six-day, more focused biochemical investigations on different aspects of a specific, biologically important protein. Finally, during the last month as Student Research Interns, students are placed in a research laboratory to work on their own original project under the supervision of premier UAB faculty and staff.
