STEM CELL RESEARCH PROGRAM
EARLY INVESTIGATOR HIGH SCHOOL
What is EiHS?
Originally founded at USC, the Early Investigator High School (EiHS) Stem Cell Research Program provides a rare opportunity for high school students to step into the shoes of stem cell researchers. EiHS Fellows are able to create, differentiate and perform original research with human stem cells through one of three programs - Stem Cell Academy, Research Internship or Regenerative Medicine and Disease Modeling program.
EiHS is the only stem cell reserach program for high school students that guarantees all participants will work hands-on with human stem cells alongside professional scientists in sophisticated laboratories. Our innovative courses foster interpersonal development and equip students with expertise and skills for future college and career applications.
More than just a summer program, EiHS identifies the next generation of stem cell researchers and provides a stepping stone for budding sceintists to achieve their dreams. In addition to exploring the amazing world of stem cell research, participants create memories and friendships that last a lifetime.
