Phage Camp - a Great Opportunity for High School Students to Learn About Science

July 17-21, 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

 Ages 14-18

Join us for a week of scientific research in the lab. Bacteriophages are tiny phage viruses that attack bacteria, and are useful in human medicine. A huge, invisible world of phage viruses are yet to be discovered. We explore our campus in search of these novel phages. We purify, visualize and characterize new phages as part of an ongoing research project.

  • Study phages used in medicine
  • Enjoy fieldwork and lab work alongside professors
  • Discover new viral species
  • Visualize molecular structures with transmission electron microscopy
