Young Scientist Foundation
The Young Scientist Foundation unique foundation enables young people to discover their passion for science and for helping society by working alongside accomplished researchers to develop new treatments for diseases. This hands-on experience provides high-school students and undergraduates with a rare opportunity to begin building a successful career in translational research, which turns new scientific discoveries into therapies that benefit patients.
Scientific research has never been more exciting. Our young scientists go far beyond a standard classroom curriculum to study, first-hand, the intricate pathways of the body, and identify potential drug targets using mice models. Starting young people on a path of scientific discovery fosters creativity, and inspires them to think of possibilities that can lead to innovative treatments.
