Three students from the Science Research Program at High School West have been awarded fellowships from the Simons Summer Research Program.

The SSRP pairs 30 top high school students with distinguished faculty in science, math and engineering at Stony Brook University. The fellows learn laboratory techniques, become part of an active research team and experience life at a research university.

High School West student Stephen Kyranakis will work with Dr. Wei Yin in the department of biomedical engineering. Student Hannah Rosenthal will work with Dr. Lilliana Davalos in the department of ecology and evolution, while student Caitlin Unkenholz will work with Dr. James Bilska in the department of molecular genetics and microbiology.
