    Students conduct biological research and explore the extremely hot topic of synthetic biology.  This field aims to identify genes that cause genetic diseases, providing a jumping off point for therapeutic intervention. Come join us on the cutting edge of science this summer in our three week pre-college high school program!

    Biological Research: Synthetic Biology has won numerous awards and sold out multiple years in a row. Why? Because this cutting-edge program, one of the most lab-intensive at BLI, covers topics you won’t see in high school. Synthetic Biology, gene therapy, and genetic engineering will allow scientists to eliminate genetic diseases and mutations, saving lives across the globe. Genetic engineers are working to eliminate cancer-causing mutations, lessen the impact of Down Syndrome, and provide the ability to hear to deaf patients for the first time. They can even engineer bacteria to break down plaque in the bloodstream, eliminating blood clots that would otherwise result in fatal strokes.  The new frontier of modern medicine has arrived, and this summer at BLI, you can be a part of it.

    This is a competitive admissions summer research program designed for teens.
