The Feeley-Liu lab offers a competitive summer research program for high school, college, and medical students who would like to gain experience in sports medicine and translational stem cell research. Students are paired with senior investigators and lab personnel and are responsible for learning basic techniques in molecular and cell biology, including histologic sample preparation and analysis, gene expression (e.g RT-PCR), protein expression, and assessment of stem cell function and fate. A majority of the students who participate in the lab also gain exposure to clinical research and have the opportunity to shadow in the UCSF Sports Medicine Clinic. Many students are able to present their research at local, national, and international meetings and gain authorship on abstracts for conferences as well as scientific papers.
