Through the researcHStart program we introduce high-school students to cancer research and promote career opportunities in the field, helping students gain knowledge in biophysics, biochemistry, immunology, and pharmacology.
After the researcHStart program:
- 95% of students felt more confident in their ability as researchers
- 95% of students said the experience increased their interest in cancer-related careers
- 100% of students said they were more knowledgeable about to pursuing cancer-related careers
The majority of recent researcHStart participants intend to pursue majors in biology-related fields such as pre-medicine, biomedical engineering, biochemistry, and health sciences. Others are already working toward degrees in science and technology.
