Welcome to the MMIA Program site!

 
Join us on March 8-9, 2015 for our annual Molecular Medicine In Action symposium.
 
Molecular Medicine In Action symposium is a FREE of cost program sponsored by Lilly Endownment and conducted by Indiana University School of Medicine faculty for junior and senior high school students . Our program provides an opportunity for the students to experience hands-on the methods scientists use in unlocking and modifying the genetic code of diseases.  Students will stay overnight with adult supervision at the Omni Severin Hotel in downtown Indianapolis with meals also provided.
 
Our overarching goal of the symposium is to increase students’ excitement for science, increase the number of students that ultimately select science as a career choice, and provide hands-on learning in a state-of-the art medical research environment.
 
We would like to invite you to nominate your junior and/or senior high school students to participate in the program, which will provide 50 high school students from across Indiana a day of hands-on experience in science.  Under the supervision of research scientists, small groups of students will rotate through several work stations and laboratory sites. They will see and learn how modern molecular biology techniques are used for gene discovery, mutation analysis and cellular function. 
 
Selected applicants and their parents will be notified of acceptance during the week of December 17th.
