The Biomedical Research Institute of New Jersey (BRInj) is committed to the training, education and mentorship of aspiring research scientists and physicians. In pursuit of that goal, BRInj has partnered with MidAtlantic Neonatology Associates (MANA) and other leading organizations to offer a High School Research Program. The program is designed to give students exposure to cutting-edge research, an appreciation for scientific and medical careers, and an opportunity to learn basic laboratory and research skills.

2015 High School Summer Students. Happy faces after they presented their research findings to friends and family!

We are pleased to invite outstanding high school students to conduct biomedical research in our state-of-the-art laboratory in collaboration with PhD and MD scientists. This two-week, hands-on research experience is a great way for students to assess their inclination for careers in science and medicine; while at the same time gaining transferable skills that can be used in college-level laboratory classes and other research opportunities.
