Biophysics Research for Baltimore Teens Program
The Biophysics Research for Baltimore Teens (BRBT) program provides opportunities for Baltimore City high school students to experience hands-on biomedical research in a state-of-the-art research facility at Johns Hopkins University. BRBT paid internships are five days a week for an six-week period from mid-June through mid-August.
BRBT interns experience the excitement of scientific discovery in a high-tech teaching laboratory equipped with the latest in research instrumentation under the guidance of two full-time instructors. BRBT's goal is to give the students confidence, mentorship, and know-how to excel in the research laboratory, and to give them a pathway to a career in biomedical research.
BRBT brings together a mix of students and mentors, ranging from high-school sophomores, juniors, and seniors to Johns Hopkins Undergraduates. In addition, students spend part of their time in Hopkins research labs with graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and faculty. This exposure to a cross-section of scientists helps the high-school students see a clear path from their current studies to a lifelong career in science.
