Scientists have developed a molecular “clock” that could reshape how pediatricians measure and monitor childhood growth and potentially allow for an earlier diagnosis of life-altering development disorders. The research, published this week in PNAS, describes how the addition of chemical tags to DNA over time can potentially be used to screen for developmental differences and health problems in children.
High school students interested in attending Mini Med School must be nominated by a teacher as per the Nomination Guidelines below.
- Interested students must be in grades 10-12
- High school students must be nominated by a teacher to attend this event. Students cannot register themselves. Nominations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. As space is limited, not all nominations will be guaranteed a seat.
- This event is very popular, we encourage teachers to register students as soon as the nomination form is available.
- Teachers are invited, but not required, to attend.
The nomination form is now closed.
To complete the nomination form the teacher will require the student's name, grade and email address.
This is a popular program for high school students and each year we have an extensive wait list of interested participants. Students unable to attend a session are asked to advise us as soon as possible.
