Prince in the City w/ HBCU S.T.A.R.S at UCSD (4818 hits)

Meet the next generation of African American doctors in the field of Biological Science and Engineering. Not too mention that these students are HBCU students; Morehouse College and Howard University.

The University of California, San Diego Summer Training Academy for Research in the Sciences (STARS) program is an eight week summer research academy for undergraduate students, recent graduates, and masters students. STARS offers an exciting research internship for students by participating in an ongoing UCSD research project and experience the rigors and challenges of graduate study at a top rated research institution. (ucsd.org)

Everyone in this group is doing one type of STEM research, while learning and preparing for their graduate entrance exam to pursue a doctorate if they so choose. One student from Morehouse College, Julian Pilate--Hutcherson, tells me that he is studying nano-particles, and learning how they function, so they can be used as a model to make synthetic lungs. Another type of research is social networking which Taylor Facen, from Howard University, is studying what key factors does an individual have to lead a group of people based on who they are connected to.

"This program is really tailored to you and what you want to study in the future," Taylor Facen says.

If you are thinking about pursuing a doctorate degree, and are an undergrad, then I highly suggest you participate in the STARS program in San Diego, Ca at UCSD.

When I asked Julian "why should students from across the country come here and participate in STARS?" he said that the weather is great and that UCSD is one of the top rated research institutions in the country.
