Our meeting is on!

The fourth academic year follow up meeting of the 2014 Waksman Student Scholars Program (WSSP) will take place as scheduled on Wednesday, February 4, 2015 beginning at 4PM in Room 1001 of the Waksman Institute on the Busch Campus of Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ.  We look forward to seeing you!


The Waksman Student Scholars Program (WSSP) provides opportunities for high school students and their teachers to conduct an authentic research project in molecular biology and bioinformatics and publish their findings. This is a year-long program that begins each year with summer Institutes for teachers and one or two of their students. It continues back at each high school during the academic year, when more students can become involved in the research project. In the course of these studies, students, teachers, and research scientists work together on a genuine research problem. By actually doing science, students gain an understanding of how science operates and are encouraged to continue their education and careers in a science discipline.  A video of an overview of the WSSP can be found here.
