Our students have made real and lasting contributions to help advance biomedical knowledge. Some summer students become co-authors on papers, not only giving them the thrill of seeing their name in print, but giving them a great addition to their CV for future educational and career pursuits. Several of our high school students have submitted their projects to the Westinghouse Science Talent Search and have won scholarships. In 2012, a CURE student won a travel award to present his summer research project at the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students. Sometimes the work even translates into valuable intellectual property such as inventions.
