BEAM School Year
January 2021 (12-16 weeks)
University Certificate & HS Credit for Advanced Lab Research
UCI x GATI's Online Lab Research Program (BEAM 2.0) for High School Students Interested in the Fields of Science, Tech, Engineering & Medicine!
University-Level Online STEM Research
UCI x GATI offers an enriching experience for gifted high school students to pursue their passion and interests in the ever-expanding fields of Biology, Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, and Medicine (BEAM).
Students will learn about current research of distinguished faculty at UCI under the guidance of a lab mentor. They will be grouped in a cohort with other gifted high school students from all over the world.
Learn from lectures about up-to-date research, cutting-edge technology, real-world applications in the interdisciplinary fields of BEAM such as mechanical / biomedical engineering, neurobiology,
Learn about a specific research topic that you are matched with. Work with your research project group and conduct research under the guidance of research mentors and faculty.
Organize research findings and write a paper.
How BEAM School Year Works
BEAM Faculty for Spring 2021
Assistant Professor of Neurology and Neurological Surgery
Dr. Akbari's research revolves around investigating mechanisms underlying consciousness, coma, and global stroke with a focus on cardiac arrest (CA) and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). His lab is the first cardiac arrest and resuscitation lab at UC Irvine, incorporating a combination of basic science, translational, and clinical research aspects.
Professor at the Anatomy and Neurobiology & Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Dr. Reinkensmeyer's research activities focus on movement control, neuro-rehabilitation and robotics. One of his group's objectives is to develop physically interacting, mechatronic devices ("rehabilitators") to help the nervous system recover movement ability after neurologic injuries such as stroke or spinal cord injury. His group also is working to understand the adaptive control processes that enable motor learning throughout the life span.
