I’m Contagious……but I’m developing the cure!This week-long camp is designed to provide high school students with an introduction to thepharmaceutical industry. We examine the R&D-to-commercialization pipeline that bringsa medical discovery to the market. Campers have the opportunity to participate in excitinghands-on laboratory projects, like working with recombinant DNA. They also experiencebehind-the-scenes activities at local biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies and some of TexasA&M’s most elite centers, to learn more about careers in research, engineering, and biomanufacturing.NCTM STEM SUMMER CAMPJune 4-8, 2012 and June 18-22, 2012NCTM
