Emerging Technologies

Activity Leader(s): 

A challenge in a dynamic area like biotechnology is identifying new technologies and deciding which to included in courses and how best to teach them.  

Bio-Link students are starting to work with new technologies like stem cells, CRISPR / Cas9, bioprinting, and 3D printing.  We're interested in identifying new techniques on the horizon and figuring out the best ways to teach students about these new areas.  

Our first activity is a bioinformatics course for instructors.  Sign up for our mailing list to learn more about future courses.
