The Emory Pre-College Program is a summer academic program for high school students. It gives college-bound sophomores and juniors an exciting glimpse of academic and residential life at a top-ranked national university.
Students enrolled in this selective three-week institute will spend the first two-weeks in the classroom and the third week shadowing in a research lab. Students will participate in several afternoon workshops in preparation for their third week experience. Students will be highly engaged through hands-on work in a human pathogens laboratory, learning to use cutting edge laboratory equipment and techniques to answer questions about the etiology of disease, mechanisms of virulence and other intriguing infectious disease and public health questions.
ALTERNATIVE: Students interested in the institute may apply for the two-week Infectious Diseases: Causes and Cures course.
Prerequisites: High School Biology, Chemistry and Algebra
Students must be 16 years old by the session start date to take this lab course.
