Discovery of new medicines, innovative devices for medical imaging, and diagnostics are some areas that have seen tremendous commercial success. Gene Therapy and Stem Cell Therapy are considered to be fields that can offer a cure for conditions such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine fields are making great discoveries in making organ transplants and artificial tissues to be a reality. All these developments utilize and depend on biotechnology concepts and methods. This course offers an opportunity for high school students to learn about the skills and techniques that enable development of innovative techniques.


Students will learn about advanced biotechnology concepts and techniques with a significant experiential component. How cells can be manipulated at DNA and protein level for tuning their functional features for a desired outcome will be introduced. The course will consist of lecture-laboratory components with class discussions and a career-oriented view of the biotechnology sector.

If you are interested in making a career in healthcare, whether in medicine, pharma, or any healthcare-allied fields such as biomedical devices or instrumentation, then this summer course is something you do not want to miss.  Click for more information.
