Congratulations to Emily Kinnarney, a Bloomington High School South student.
Emily Kinnarney, a student in Angella Flloyd’s anatomy class at Bloomington High School South in Monroe County Community Schools, has been selected to participate in the Molecular Medicine in Action symposium, a very prestigious and exciting symposium over this coming spring break. Emily is one of 50 students who will participate in this symposium at the Indiana School of Medicine during March. The symposium is intended to help instill an excitement for science, offer hands-on learning in a state-of-the art medicine and allied health environment, and help attract interested students to a career in molecular medicine. Students will work side-by-side with IU School of Medicine researchers and physicians as they learn more about cutting-edge knowledge about angiogenesis and stem cells and how molecular biology techniques are used for gene discovery, mutation analysis and cellular function.
The Molecular Medicine In Action (MMIA) is a free program that was developed by representatives of the Riley Children’s Foundation, the Wells Center for Pediatric Research, the IU School of Medicine, the Indiana Association of Biology Teachers and the Hoosier Association of Science Teachers with the hopes of providing high school students an inside view of research and science. “This conference introduces the students to incredible new knowledge that is rapidly becoming accessible from the recent advances in biomedicine and the quickening pace of scientific discovery” elates Mark Kelley, PhD., Associate Director, Wells Center for Pediatric Research.”
