"The mission of the SIMR program is to enrich and grow the US STEM workforce by providing biomedical research opportunities to high school students who would bring diversity to biomedical research.”
The SIMR program introduces local students to the world of biomedical research while promoting active engagement with the scientific process and science identity.
A Message From SIMR's Faculty Director
An important goal of SIMR is to select a class of students whose individual and collective education will benefit from a diverse student body, broadly defined. Although any student is welcome to apply, SIMR will focus on creating opportunities for local Northern California students. We especially encourage students to apply who are from groups that are under-represented in the United States biomedical research workforce, including (but not limited to) students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, students who will be first generation college students, ethnic minorities, women, and individuals with disabilities.
