Northport High School Science Research Program student Nathaniel Wang has recently been invited to conduct research at two world-renowned research institutions—Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Brookhaven National Laboratory.

For six weeks this summer, Nathaniel will work with Dr. Abid Malik, a senior technology engineer, as a part of the High School Research Program at Brookhaven National Laboratory. This highly competitive educational program gives students interested in pursuing STEM studies (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) hands-on experience in a real-world setting. Selected students work together with BNL staff to collaborate on intensive projects.

In addition, Nathaniel was awarded a research placement in the laboratory of Dr. Bo Li at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. He will work under the mentorship of Dr. Xian Zhang as part of the Partners for the Future Program, which provides talented Long Island high school students with an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in biomedical research at CSHL. Nathaniel will spend a minimum of 10 hours per week, from September through March of his upcoming senior year, performing original neuroscience research.
