Educational Outreach Activities
Prof. Yang is passionate about integrating research and education, and developing outreach activities to positively impact students ranging from elementary schools to high schools. We have also hosted visiting undergraduate students from other universities to conduct summer research in Yang lab, via various research internships or exchange programs such as Amgen Scholar Program, NIH-STEP UP programs, and Chinese Undergraduate Visiting Research Program etc. We mentor high school students for lab research through the RISE (Raising Interest in Science and Engineering) Summer Internship Program, which is sponsored by the Stanford Office of Science Outreach. RISE is designed for bright low income students and those who will be the first in their families to attend college. Interested students should apply directly via RISE program. To help sparkle interests in science and medicine in young children, we have also developed educational outreach activities for local elementary schools, in which we went out to elementary classrooms to introduce the concept of tissue repair via formats of story-telling and interactive games.
