LAB Jumpstart

LAB Jumpstart—formerly the LAB After-School Program (LAB ASP)— supports 16 NYC high school students in a combined after-school and summer science research experience. This program aims to ‘jumpstart’ the development of research skills and exposure to laboratory culture.

  • The spring after-school sessions (March – June) provide initial small-group training to students, starting with fundamental laboratory skills and practices, progressing into technical tools and research skills that the students will use in their mentored laboratory research.
  • The summer full-time immersive research experience (June – August) centers around a 7-week laboratory placement where participants are given the opportunity to conduct an independent research project under close mentorship of trained Rockefeller scientists. This occurs in conjunction with the highly-selective Summer Science Research Program (SSRP).

Summer Science Research Program (SSRP)

SSRP provides high school students with a unique and personalized opportunity to conduct hands-on research under the mentorship of leading scientists at one of the world’s premier biomedical research facilities.

  • During this rigorous 7-week program, SSRP students become immersed in scientific culture while gaining an appreciation for the process of biomedical discovery.
  • Students will be individually matched with scientist mentors to perform original research tasks
