Molecular Medicine/Biomedical Research Summer Camps  
Rosetta Institute of Biomedical Research
5941 Optical Court,

San Jose, CA, 95138

We provide advanced classes for high achieving high school students interested in pursuing a career in medicine or related fields, such as biomedical research, drug development, pharmacy or nursing. We offer several workshops – Molecular Biology of Cancer, Molecular Neuroscience, Molecular Immunology, Medical and Translational Bioinformatics and Biomedical Research – that are taught by PhD-level instructors with years of research and teaching experience.

Through engaging lectures and hands-on laboratory classes, students learn normal molecular and cellular biology, and then learn how these normal processes are disrupted or distorted during the development of disease. In addition, there is a heavy emphasis on modern drug development and the emergence of the era of personalized medicine. To conclude the workshop, students use what they have learned to create an original research project on a gene or molecular process
of their choice.

More broadly, workshop attendees make friends from around the world, strengthen their academic skills, and experience college dorm life in a safe environment.
Workshops are held at UC Berkeley, UC San Diego and in San Jose, CA.  Students are housed in on-campus undergraduate dorms and eat in campus dining facilities, and a commuter option for day campers is also available. 
Ages 14-18.
