The Future's Bright for Stem Cell Therapies: High School Student Researchers

Over the summer and fall of 2013, we rolled out our "Through Their Lens" social media series to showcase seventy students from forty high schools who did stem cell research summer internships at nine universities throughout California. The programs are supported by CIRM's Creativity Awards.

We were happily overwhelmed with over 300 social media uploads to our website including blogs, Instagram photos and YouTube videos submitted by the students to describe their summer in the lab.

This CIRM-produced video serves as an epilogue to this past summer's internships and provides a sneak peak at these students' bright futures as stem cell scientists.

Over the course of the three-year CIRM Creativity Awards program, our agency will have supported 220 high school students in stem cell research internships.
