Partnership for Scientific Inquiry (PSI), local high school course that gives students real-world research experience, is looking for volunteer mentors from OHSU. What makes this program invaluable to students is the opportunity to work closely with their mentors to create a research proposal and conduct that research in their mentor’s lab.
Mentors attend one class to give a brief presentation to the students and then meet periodically with an assigned student to help them read a peer-reviewed article and prepare a research proposal. Most mentors will also host their student in the summer. The first class begins Monday, February 4.
