  • Minor Volunteers and Minor Paid Workers in Upstate Research Laboratories Review
    Upstate recognizes the importance of early participation in health care, medicine, and biomedical research activities in the career choice and planning by future professionals in these fields.

Equally important is our obligation to understand and comply with State Labor law requirements and restrictions in the matter of placing minors as volunteers or paid workers in a laboratory setting.
