Mills Senior Mitra Pourmehraban Attends the UC Davis Young Scholars Program

MItra at UC Davis
Mitra Pourmehraban, a senior at Mills High School, was among a select group of students who attended the UC Davis Young Scholars Program. The advanced science program, now over 50 years old and offered by the School of Education, introduces up to 40 high achieving high school sophomores and juniors to the world of original research in the biological and natural sciences. “Students work under the direction of real-world researchers,” said Rick Pomeroy, program director and teacher educator in the School of Education at UC Davis. “In fact, these high school students are engaged in research that most college undergraduates don’t have an opportunity to do.” Under the mentorship of Aldrin Gomes, Mitra conducted two research projects in the Department of Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior. To qualify for the program, students must have a strong academic record, have taken biology and two years of college preparatory mathematics, and have recommendations from teachers. In addition, applicants must write a personal essay. Congratulations Mitra!
