The Forsyth Institute Student Scholars Summer Internship Program was featured today in the Boston Globe. This highly competitive program exposes Boston-area high school students to the world of scientific research.
This summer, eight interns selected from a pool of more than 200 applicants worked side-by-side with Forsyth scientists in their labs. Three of those students—Angel Muthemba, Cheyenne Stringfellow, and Anthony Kushta—were featured in the article. Their research projects range from examining the mouse oral microbiome to studying the cells involved in HIV.
The program culminates in an awards ceremony and reception that is open to the public. Students will present their summer projects and answer questions about their research.
The Forsyth Institute Student Scholars Summer Internship Program is one of the oldest high school STEM programs in Boston. The program is funded in part by Colgate and through private donations. You can learn more about the program or make a donation here.
