A group of 17 high school students is  spending their summer with OSU-CHS researchers as part of the Oklahoma Science and Training Research Students and Native Science and Training Research Students programs. The five-week internship programs, which introduce students to the biomedical, forensic and clinical research happening at OSU-CHS, kicked off Monday with a special welcome and orientation session.

The students are from Jenks High School, Union High School, Mulhall-Orlando High School and Summit Christian Academy. As part of the orientation, students completed and received an introduction about on-going research projects at OSU-CHS.

Interns will spend 20-25 hours per week working with OSU-CHS faculty and undergraduate, graduate and medical students on research projects. They will have the opportunity to present their findings at the Tulsa Research Partners' City Wide Research Day in November and OSU in Tulsa’s Research Day in 2015.
