Stem Cells & Genetic Engineering

Understanding the field of Stem Cells and Gene editing: characterization, function and applications.
This program is intended to give students a broad introduction to the exciting field of disease modeling using stem cells.. Students will explore what make stem cells unique, with a specific focus on their characterization and their function. They will extend their knowledge to include an introduction to the more specialized area of genome editing (CRISPR-Cas9). This course is an excellent way to dive deeply into disease modeling for students who are interested in the medical fields or stem cell research.

Food Science & Product Development

Understand the process of developing a new food product and create it.
New food products are developed and tested every day, then brought to market by companies that have spent millions on R&D. This program has been designed to help our students intimately understand this process. Students will perform food science-related lab work and develop food products, culminating in a project that combines product design with business and marketing concepts. Lab work is coupled with market research and business implementation to give students a realistic look at the food science industries.
