High school students share their experiences in CIRM-funded internship program

This year, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine launched a pilot program during which high-school students intern in university labs and work on projects combining stem cell research and other disciplines, such as engineering, chemistry, social sciences and ethics. Titled the CIRM Creativity Awards, the program placed 18 students in labs at Stanford and University of California campuses in San Francisco, Davis and Santa Barbara.

In the above video, Samantha Guhan, who completed her internship at Stanford, and other students talk about the types of projects they worked on and how the program increased their awareness about the potential of stem cell research.
