Congressman Tom Suozzi of New York’s third congressional district visited Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) on February 24, 2020. He congratulated over twenty high school students from local school districts who were named Regeneron finalists and scholars. Among the recipients were two participants in CSHL’s Partners for the Future program.
The Regeneron Science Talent Search is a STEM competition for high school seniors. The students submit science or math research that they worked on in a research institution under the guidance of a mentor. The two Partners for the Future students, Sejal Gupta and William Borges, were honored as semi-finalists.
The Partners for the Future program connects high school seniors with CSHL scientists and offers them the opportunity to do hands-on research at a lab at CSHL. Gupta works in the lab of neuroscientist Professor Z. Josh Huang and Borges works in the lab of cancer researcher Professor Lloyd Trotman.
