Summer High School Advanced Research Program
Supported by the Windsong Trust, the USC Summer High School

Advanced Research Program (SHSARP) provides high school students

interested in the interconnections between medicine and engineering the opportunity to gain experience in USC research laboratories. In this 8-week non-residential program, SHSARP students experience the entire research cycle, from start to finish. The students are guided by laboratory mentors in research techniques, learn how to collect and analyze data, and ultimately deliver their findings in both written and oral conference-style reports. SHSARP students also develop essential soft skills such as teamwork, networking, problem solving, and time management. The SHSARP Program is designed for rising 11th graders who are inquisitive, imaginative, and not afraid to ask big questions.
