Rosetta Institute

Rosetta Institute

Rosetta Institute offers science camps for high-achieving students. Through engaging lectures and hands-on laboratory classes, students learn about normal molecular/cellular biology, and then learn how these normal processes are distorted during the development of disease.


They also offer winter/spring break camps on Medical Bioinformatics and laboratory-intensive day camp on Biomedical Research.


More broadly, workshop attendees make friends from around the world, strengthen their academic skills, and experience college dorm life in a safe environment. Students are housed in on-campus undergraduate dorms in doubles, triples or quads, and eat in campus dining facilities. Teaching assistants/residential advisors live with the students and are available to mentor and assist the students. In addition, the camp directors are on-site 24 hours/day.
