Current Programs

All members of the Plastic Surgery Laboratories are dedicated to community outreach, and this includes a focus on K-12 students.  For example, the Tissue Engineering Laboratory has established a summer program for high school students, entitled ROHSS (Research Opportunities for High School Students). This program has supported over 75 western Pennsylvania female high school students, providing an opportunity to those who might not have such a chance to visit a tissue engineering or plastic surgery research laboratory.

For students interested in this program, please email the Plastic Surgery Research Laboratory Director, Dr. Kacey Marra, at
