Target Group: High School and Undergraduates.

Objectives: The objective of the CHORI Summer Research Program is to provide summer research training opportunities for high School students. The goal is to provide clinical research opportunities for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, racial and ethnic minorities, and others who are underrepresented in this field (e.g., individuals with disabilities).
