Stem Cell Research Program

The Early Investigator High School (EiHS) Stem Cell Research Program offers a rare opportunity for aspiring scientists to step into the shoes of stem cell researchers. EiHS is the only high school program that guarantees participating students a hands-on experience with human stem cells in state-of-the-art research facilities. Participants in the EiHS program are given the rare opportunity to work in the research laboratories of world-renowned scientists at the USC Keck School of Medicine and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.

More than just a summer science program, EiHS provides a unique conduit for identifying the next generation of biomedical scientists and a stepping-stone for budding scientists to achieve their dreams. And it doesn’t end after they leave the laboratory. In addition to exploring the amazing world of stem cell research, participants will create memories and friendships that last a lifetime.
