My understanding if that you have Independent thoughts and you want to achieve it through collaborating with academic institutions or companies. First, I appreciate your courage. Second, I think the best way is to write a proposal of your planned project, then approach genetic departments of your interests. You can find the list of faculty's name on universities website. If your research projects is about a specific disease, e.g., cancer, you can also approach the faculty members from oncology department. Some colleges has program/fundign for high school student education. You can ask for that when you approach the faculty members. Good luck with your research!
