Outreach Program


Dr. Mehmet Yigit and student



Our outreach program aims to inspire and in turn educate K-12 kids and the greater public about ribonucleic acid (RNA).



Since RNA controls protein production in the human body, it has enormous potential to treat and diagnose disease. This cutting edge research area has relevance to public health and therefore, we feel strongly about educating the public about this molecule. 

We have a menu of activities for a variety of age and skill levels. Some activities involve science projects and others teach basic scientific concepts through art and movement.  Please contact Lori Chertoff for more information.
