The Harvard Ophthalmology Ocular Regenerative Medicine Institute expanded its educational offerings last summer when Michael Young, PhD, developed a STEM program to provide internships and learning opportunities in regenerative ophthalmology to interested students at Revere High School. Through this program, faculty from Schepens Eye Research Institute of Massachusetts Eye and Ear give lectures on current research at Schepens and Mass. Eye and Ear, and students have the opportunity to visit and tour these laboratories and facilities. Summer internships are available for highly motivated and qualified juniors. This year, three students participated in the internship program, and next summer Dr. Young plans to expand the program to six to eight students. Students who are 16 years or older from all local schools are welcome to apply.
