About the Program

This competitive program accepts 12/14 high school girls from all areas of San Diego County. Sessions are held on a series of Saturdays during the summer and include topics such as, reproductive physiology, cancer biology, in vitro fertilization and reproductive bioethics. During the sessions, students don personalized lab coats to learn research techniques from top UCSD faculty, and engage in lively discussions with their peers regarding issues surrounding reproductive function in women with cancer. Instruction is also led by Dr. Ericka Senegar-Mitchell, an outstanding and nationally-recognized high school biology/biotech teacher. At the end of the summer, students give poster and oral presentations during a graduation ceremony and the top presenters are invited to a national conference in Chicago.
