2017 Program Dates:

June 19 – August 11, 2017
“I learned about the existence of a whole "new" field of science and biology. I also learned a lot about cancer and how it can develop.”

“I learned so much about the field of research and how much effort goes into even a small project. I grew as a scientist, became more independent and got a better idea of what I want to pursue.”

“I learned so much. I've become more confident in my abilities as a potential scientist/researcher. This program helped me learn what I want to accomplish when I am older.”

“DiSCoBio is the BEST! Our mentors are very friendly, modest, and helpful. The small size of the program allows us to develop closer friendships with our peers.”
