An exciting opportunity for high school students (16+ years) who are interested in and have a passion for research: The Clinical & Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin and the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) provides an exciting education program during the 2018-2019 academic year called SUPREMES (Students Understanding Principles of Research Education through Medicine, Engineering, and Science).

SUPREMES is an academic year-long program that provides high school students with an educational experience in biomedical research, clinical research, and/or technology development in grant funded laboratories at MCW, Marquette University (MU), and the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Research Institute (CRI) in the Milwaukee metro area. Students will be introduced to new technologies, cutting-edge research, and exciting laboratory practices, guided and taught by highly skilled, established faculty investigators.

The program has two learning modules: Training and Laboratory Practicum

Module 1: Training (September-December)

Students will attend two, consecutive one-half day workshops per week (Tuesdays and Wednesdays 2:30-5:00 PM) at MCW and further their research understanding through state-of-the-art technology, scientific scholarly writing, and laboratory techniques/methodologies.

Module 2: Laboratory Practicum (January-May)

Students will apply the knowledge and skills developed in Module 1 during a semester-long research-based investigation in a laboratory setting at MCW, MU or CRI. Students are required to work a minimum of 100 hours in an assigned laboratory setting.

Attached is the SUPREMES promotional flyer to share with those students and their families who are eligible and interested in the program. Application deadline for the 2018-2019 academic year is April 23, 2018. Student can apply by visiting the SUPREMES webpage to access the application and learn more about the program.
