Training in Biotechnology

For two weeks at the start of every summer, 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.

Training in Biotechnology will next be held at Nightingale in June 2018. If you are interested in participating in this program, please complete the application below.
