OBJECTIVES The mission of the Program is to educate an interdisciplinary group of students with backgrounds in biology, biophysics, biochemistry and chemistry in the applied biological and chemical sciences of biotechnology for careers in academia, government and industry. The Program encourages students from multiple disciplines to experience research in close relation to biomedical engineering students, while working in the field of biotechnology. To prepare students for careers of constructive service to society in academia, government, industry and health related fields. To engage committed students in areas not experienced in their previous academic lives and to bring them to a baseline that will allow them to conduct translational research, from conceptual design through in vivo testing with an eye towards clinical implementation. To provide interdisciplinary research and educational opportunities to solve problems that will improve the quality of life for those suffering from health-related diseases and disorders
