Training biotechies

The School of Medicine has received $1 million over five years from the National Institutes of Health for a new, interdisciplinary biotechnology training program. The University-wide program will give doctoral students the chance to work with leading scientists in an academic and industrial setting. It will also fill a local, statewide and national need for a new generation of scientists capable of translating biological, chemical and engineering principles into technological discoveries, said program director Gordon Laurie.

"Biotechnology companies want well-trained students, and our program will give students both the research skills and an understanding of the industrial culture" through externships in industrial research and product development, he said.
