"Bobby’s participation in the EIHS program ranks as a key highlight of his high school experience. He was able to work directly with Dr. Gregor Adams and his team, investigating the impact of knocking out the gene SDF1 in stromal cells. This was not only a professional, but a personal quest—Bobby’s uncle, one of my younger brothers, had been diagnosed with an unusual cancer the year before, and so Bobby felt a deep connection on multiple levels to the work. He proved an enthusiastic and active participant in the laboratory, where he did hands-on research.
Dr. Fox and her team have put together an incredible program that offers high school students an unparalleled opportunity to be involved in significant, cutting-edge work. Our son’s experience at EIHS was transformative. He not only learned valuable laboratory research skills—he gained a true appreciation for the importance of collaboration in research and its enormous potential to save lives, and he is now inspired to do more".
“Young people learn science best by doing science; there is no substitute for authentic research. Four years ago, we felt honored and privileged to help shape the EiHS program, and to send a few Harvard-Westlake aspiring scientists to the inaugural summer session. During the ensuing summers, about a dozen of our students have participated in EiHS research, and for every one of them it was a transformative experience, one that shaped their perception of the nature of scientific inquiry and strengthened their desire to become scientists.”
"Our students struggle each day in making it to school because of the demographics and the city in which they live. What keeps them going is their education, which they have embraced knowing that it will lead to a better life in the future.
The excitement and encouragement that comes from being part of hands-on scientific research is an overwhelming experience for my students. My students have definitely been inspired by the EiHS Stem Cell Research Program and most of the parents at our school are also excited about the opportunity. All of the Lifeline students that have graduated from the program have been inspired to attend a university or college"
"EiHS is transforming the inner city youth through its two-week program, which enables all students, regardless of socioeconomic considerations, to create beating cardiac tissue. And the eight-week Research Internship Program not only creates future scientists, but also motivates those students in their application to the finest universities in the country. In the premier state for Stem Cell research, EiHS is now the authority and premier brand in stem cell education. For our family: philanthropy well spent."
The EiHS Stem Cell Internship Program enables a group of very well-rounded high school students to have the opportunity to be part of a research team investigating new issues in science. Personally, I believe that it was a fascinating once-in-a-lifetime opportunity which changed my life for the better. During the first week of training in the Stem Cell Core facility we were introduced to different techniques and procedures that will helps us through the course. I learned and got to witness very interesting things which shaped my future career path. Additionally, during the program we were placed with our respected mentors. They guided us in our projects, and helped my feel more certain about the school and work I want to do in the future.
It was experience that I will never forget. It gave me a view on a lot of things that I never even knew existed. I give a special thanks to Dr. Victoria Fox who has given me the opportunity to be a part of this unforgettable experience.
