Partners in Science header

High school science teachers are invited to apply to work alongside OHSU scientists on real-world laboratory research. The Partners in Science program is especially for teachers who are interested in taking part in biomedical research over two summers and developing a working relationship with scientists while being well compensated for their findings and contributions. Five scientists from the OR National Primate Research Center at OHSU have expressed interest (COVID-permitting) in mentoring teachers in the coming summer through this program. Interested teachers can contact Diana Gordon, Education Manager at the Primate Center ([email protected]) or visit the Murdock Trust website for more information.
