The Wiegand Summer Internship provides an opportunity for a current high school senior who resides in the following counties: Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Washington and (portions of) Westmoreland, and will be graduating in the spring of 2024 to spend four to five weeks learning first-hand about regenerative medicine research and scientific investigations in general.
