Training in Biotechnology

During the last two weeks in June, Nightingale offers a course in biotechnology to prepare students for conducting advanced biomedical research. During the program, which was inspired by a set of courses taught at the Dolan DNA Learning Center at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories, students learn and practice numerous bioengineering techniques including use of restriction enzymes, the polymerase chain reaction, bacterial transformation and cloning, protein purification, and use of agarose and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis.

Space is limited, and priority is given to participants in the Independent Science Research Program. Students in the Independent Science Research Program are automatically enrolled in the course and should not fill out the form below.

Training in Biotechnology will next be held at Nightingale June 15–26, 2020. Tuition is $1,200 for the two-week session; financial aid is available for qualified participants (Nightingale families only).
