Read about the Center below:
The Center’s mission is to expand the reach of biotechnology education through three channels:
Graduate Education – Our graduate programs are designed for working professionals – delivering the rigorous and practical curriculum they need to advance their careers or academic ambitions. Johns Hopkins’ Advanced Biotechnology Studies (ABS) Program is rooted in the multidisciplinary skills of basic research, drug discovery technologies, bioinformatics, regulatory affairs, and product commercialization. The program offers four master’s degrees, graduate fellowships, and certificates.
Youth Programs – Inspiring the next generation to explore the world of biotechnology is an important objective of the Center. We developed several hands-on programs for children in elementary, middle and high school that introduce them to this exciting field.
Professional Development – Orchestrating partnerships with industry and government organizations to provide community outreach, professional development, educational opportunities, workshops, research symposia, and lecture series for academia, industry, and the general public.
