Program in Biotechnology

The Biotechnology program is designed to provide a strong academic foundation in biological sciences and chemistry, training in the various biotechnologies, and a solid understanding of their application in industry and biomedicine.
The science of biotechnology extends across many areas of biology and chemistry and provides cutting-edge technology tools for modern biology and biomedical research.

Biotechnology utilizes living cells and cellular materials to create  pharmaceutical, diagnostic, agricultural, environmental, and other products to benefit society. It is also used to study and to alter genetic information in animals so that human diseases can be modeled and studied.  

Biotechnology is both a basic and an applied science. These technologies are applied in agriculture, health care, forensics, industrial processing, and environmental management in many useful ways.

Dr. and Mrs. Robert W. Squires Scholarships for 2014-2015 have been awarded to Nicole Datko and Jillian Goltl. The award recognizes outstanding academic scholarship and research efforts by students who are majoring in Biotechnology.  Congratulations!
