Rosetta Institute of Biomedical Research

Rosetta Institute provides advanced classes for high achieving high school students interested in pursuing a career in medicine or related fields, such as biomedical research, drug development, pharmacy, or nursing. Our workshops are taught by PhD-level instructors with years of research and teaching experience. Through engaging lectures and hands-on laboratory classes, students learn normal molecular and cellular biology and then learn how these normal processes are disrupted or distorted during the development of the disease. In addition, there is a heavy emphasis on modern drug development and the emergence of the era of personalized medicine. To conclude the workshop, students use what they have learned to create an original research project on a gene or molecular process of their choice.

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. Overall, we maintain a student to staff ratio that is better than the universities require.


Our summer camps include Molecular Biology of Cancer, Molecular Neuroscience, Molecular Immunology, Molecular Biology of Aging, Bioinformatics of Cancer, and Biomedical Research. Summer workshops are held at UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, and at our facility in Alameda, CA.  Residential and commuter options are available.  Fall/winter workshops (online or in Alameda, CA) are online or computer-only and include Covid-19: Biology/Immunity/Medicine (online in November), Biomedical Research (winter break and February), and Medicinal Chemistry and Medical and Translational Bioinformatics during winter break.
