Ten students from Clinton High School got to observe biomedical research into kidney disease, high blood pressure, neuroscience and cell biology recently as part of the Discovery U program at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.
“In the Discovery U High School Program, students spend a semester on our campus, coming once a week, rotating through different labs to get exposure biomedical research,” said Michael Ryan, associate professor of physiology and Discovery U program director.
Discovery U, part of the University of Mississippi School of Graduate Studies in the Health Sciences, encompasses multiple outreach programs that seek to interest K-12 and undergraduate students in biomedical research and health-science careers.
This was Clinton High’s second year participating in the Discovery U High School Program and the first to include another school, Madison Central High School. The Clinton students were enrolled in Erin Sorey’s class in biomedical research.
“We’re hoping to expand it to other schools in the future,” Ryan said.
