Health & Biomedical Sciences Summer Camp




Program Description:

The Health and Biomedical Sciences Summer Camp provides high school students a window into the scientific basis of human health. Through lectures and hands-on laboratory investigations in state-of-the-art laboratories, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of molecular biology, pharmacology, immunology, biochemistry and medical ethics. Students will learn how laboratory science can be translated into improved human health, and they will engage in investigative experiences that will allow them to apply their laboratory skills to real life problems. In addition, students will interact with practicing professionals in fields such as medicine, physical therapy, toxicology, genetic counseling and biomedical laboratory research. The Health and Biomedical Sciences camp will provide a fun, challenging and engaging college environment in which students will develop a deeper understanding of what it means to be a biomedical scientist and health professional.  

Camp Goals:
The goal for this camp is not only to provide students with a window into the scientific basis of human health, but also to offer them a glimpse of college life through an engaging and challenging academic experience.

Campers will live in a college residence hall, participate in lectures and laboratories in the state-of the-art Neidig-Garber science building and eat their meals in the newly renovated Mund Dining Hall.  Additionally, campers will be mentored by resident advisors who are current science majors at LVC.  Resident advisors are selected based upon their expertise in the sciences, as well as their maturity and experience mentoring younger students.
