Jordan Bernard, a student in the High School Student Research Apprentice Program at UConn Health conducted six weeks of research in the CT Convergence Institute lab. Under the direction of Dr. Cato Laurencin, Jordan summarized his six weeks by presenting his research findings on Nailing the Foundation: Regenerative Engineering Approach to Traumatic Nail Injuries.
The High School Student Research Apprentice Program is for 11th and 12th grade students interested in medicine, dental medicine or biomedical research. The program provides students with a research experience in one of the basic science or clinical laboratories and provides an earned stipend. As part of the program, all students are required to present their research at the High School Student Research Apprentice Program Symposium at the end of the six weeks.
The Connecticut Convergence Institute would like to wish Jordan all the best in the next stages of his educational career!
