Biomedical Research & Global Health

About the Program

Have you ever wondered what it is like to work in a research lab? Are you interested in a science or healthcare career? In this class, developed in partnership with Seattle Children’s Research Institute, hands-on lab experiences will give you an authentic introduction to the research process.

We will learn lab safety and research protocols, use state-of-the-art equipment to conduct experiments, and review case studies related to the prevention and elimination of disease. Learn how to extract and analyze DNA, use a microscope, grow and identify bacteria, work with model organisms and conduct experiments in genetic engineering and immunology.

Guest lectures from scientists and a field trips to local research organizations will give you an inside look into careers in this exciting and rapidly growing field. Grab a lab coat and come do some science with us!
