What is STAR



The STAR (Summer Trainees in Academic Research) Program is a new initiative at NYMC aimed at enhancing the research experience of the many high school students, undergraduates, medical students and others who conduct mentored scientific investigations in our labs over the summer. Students have the opportunity to attend a series of lectures on various aspects of scientific life and to develop the communication skills essential to a career in research through participation in the STAR Research Forum.


The physical resources available to students in the Graduate School are excellent. The College's research laboratories, located in the Basic Sciences Building and other adjacent buildings, are equipped with state-of-the-art investigative equipment that provides the capacity for protein sequencing, mass spectometry, gas or liquid (HPLC) chromatography, confocal and intravital microscopy, cell cytometry, in vivo physiological monitoring and other advanced research techniques.



Your career in science starts here.
