Immersive Program

The Stem Cell Research Immersive for High School Students (the Immersive) aims to enroll high performing, under-resourced New York City high school students with the goals of providing an experience that inspires students to pursue careers in STEM fields and offers them the necessary resources to give them a head start and a better chance to excel in these fields. NYSCF is proud to partner with local nonprofit organizations to identify and select students to participate.

Students leave the Immersive with a solid foundation and understanding of stem cell research, its applications, regenerative medicine, and a new awareness of potential careers in STEM fields. NYSCF Research Institute scientists also provide students with a glimpse into a “day in the life” of their job and conduct mock interviews for an internship in their departments.
