Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s Professor for a Day program shows gifted high school students what science involves outside the laboratory, in particular how scientists communicate their work and subject it to peer review.

Sachem East science research students, Celia Toral, a sophomore, and Caitlin Collica, a junior, were selected for this incredible opportunity.

While participating they got a taste of what a career in science is like, receiving a genuine sense of how the scientific community operates.

Among the many panels and activities that the students participated in was a discussion about fundamental immunology and its therapeutic potential with speakers from institutions like UCLA’s School of Medicine, the University of Oxford and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
