SUPREMES Symposium 2022

For the first time in three academic years, the class of the SUPREMES Program was able to meet in person to proudly display their research findings and present their posters at the annual SUPREMES Symposium. Held within the Medical College of Wisconsin’s high-tech and versatile Discovery Classroom, students and faculty gathered for a fun afternoon of celebration, engagement and discussion.

The 2022 SUPREMES Program was a unique hybrid solution to the COVID-19 pandemic, administering its first semester of lectures and training via Zoom while preparing the twelve SUPREMES Program students for a spring semester in-person, inside of the labs, in a shift to a more familiar SUPREMES Program format.


We were able to bring the SUPREMES Program back for the 2021-2022 school year after a pause due to Covid-19, and it has been a great year! The students did an amazing job adapting to the ever-changing nature of this year's experience, and I am very proud of each and every one of them! They showed determination and perseverance, and the posters presented at the SUPREMES Symposium reflect their hard work and dedication." 

 – Dušanka Djorić, SUPREMES Program Director


The thirteen students were selected from a pool of over fifty applicants and represented eight different high schools within the greater Milwaukee metro area, including Brookfield East and Central, Pius XI Catholic High School, and Waukesha Engineering Prep.

Research topics ranged from studying cystic fibrosis to predicting and protecting head injuries sustained while playing high school football. Students were able to participate in their research at the Medical College of Wisconsin, the Zablocki VA Medical Center Laboratories, Versiti Blood Research Center and the Children’s Research Institute.
