Solid GEMS Summer Institute Visits CHOP

The SEBS EOF 2017 Solid GEMS Summer Institute scholars visited the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to participate in an experiential learning excursion focused on graduate school and research.  Dr. Paulette McCrae, Academic Programs Officer for the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, and her team planned and executed an interactive information and career exploration discussion, focused on scientific discovery and innovation. This excursion served to unmask the myths regarding scientific research, introduced participants to current Ph.D. students and recent graduates, as well as exposed students to ongoing cutting edge research.  The visit to CHOP was the highlight of the Solid GEMS Summer Institute experience, as students walked away with a newfound appreciation for research careers.

The 2018 Solid GEMS Summer Institute will commence on May 24th and end on August 15th. Applications will be available beginning December 1, 2018.
