Biomedical Research Academy for Secondary School Students (BioMeRA) 2015
Date : 2015-07-15 - 2015-08-31
The Biomedical Research Academy for Secondary School Students "BioMeRA" was first launched by the School in summer 2015, which aimed to provide secondary school students interested in biomedical sciences a holistic experience of being a biomedical research student in the campus of CUHK. Nine Form 4 to 6 students participated in the six-week programme from mid-July to late August 2015.
Under the supervision of Research Mentors, Investigators from our School, the participating students were guided to conduct biomedical research projects on topics related to cancer, stem cells, neurological diseases, vascular, reproductive and developmental biology. To broaden students' exposure and enrich their experience, specially designed mini-lectures and workshops in relation to the various research topics, and visits to commercial laboratories related to biomedical sciences were arranged. They could also have the chance to experience campus life through their participation in the activities led by our Postgraduate Student Ambassadors.
List of participating students and Research Mentors is as follows:
