There is no application deadline, but students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible because suitable candidates are accepted on a rolling basis. A letter of recommendation is not required for Winter/Spring workshops, and all online workshops, but a letter can be submitted as a supplement to an application. A link to the recommendation form can be found at the bottom of the page.

Winter/Spring workshops are commuter only or online. Winter workshops run approximately 9am-5pm PST, while Spring workshops are later afternoon/evening (PST) to accommodate school schedules. The online Medicinal Chemistry (12/26-12/30) and online Medical Bioinformatics (12/26-12/30) workshops are $490. The in-person, commuter-only Biomedical Research workshop during winter break (12/26-12/31, ~9am-5pm PST) is $1490. During spring, the online Emerging Pathogenic Viruses (3/14-3/25, 4-7pm PST) workshop is $390, and the Introduction to Cellular and Molecular Medicine workshop (3/28-4/8, M-F, 4:30-6:30pm PST) is $325.
Residential fees for the university-based Cancer/Neuroscience/Immunology/Aging workshops are $3580. Residential tuition includes room and board, transportation to/from the airport (with restrictions), custom T shirt/lanyard/notebook/pen, weekend field trip and some recreational activities, and workshop materials. There are a limited number of non-residential commuter spots available for $2280 (includes lunch, T shirt/lanyard/notebook/pen and all activities).
The Biomedical Research workshops (commuter only) are $2780. Tuition includes custom T shirt/notebook/pen/workshop materials/special gift).
There are two separate but concurrent sessions of the Medicinal Chemistry workshop, one from 9am-12pm PST, and one from 3-6pm PST. Similarly, there are three separate but concurrent sessions of Intro to Cellular and Molecular Medicine, one from 9-11:00am PST, one from 12-2:00pm PST, and one from 3-5:00pm PST. The summer sessions of the Medical Bioinformatics workshop will be 2.5 hours in the morning, and 3 hours in the afternoon, and additional time is available for one-on-one project discussion with the instructor.
Tuition for the summer online workshops is as follows: the online Intro to Cellular and Molecular Medicine workshops (6/6-6/17) are $375, the online Medicinal Chemistry (6/20-7/1) workshops are $490, and tuition for the online Medical Bioinformatics workshops (7/5-7/15 and 8/1-8/12) are $880.
