By Advancing the Science contributor

Rochester, Minnesota, area high school students will meet Mayo Clinic researchers and tour their laboratories at the upcoming 18th biennial Celebration of Research. The daylong conference on Tuesday, Feb. 26, enables students in grades 10–12 to learn about biomedical science and research careers.

“We are excited to welcome students from our Minnesota communities, so they have an opportunity to learn more about career paths in research and how research is the future of medicine,” says conference co-chair, Jim Maher III, Ph.D., dean of Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. Dr. Maher is the Bernard Pollack Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

This year's theme will be “Fishing for Cures” — a nod to the important role of zebra fish in researching human conditions.
