The Toxicology, Health and Environmental Disease (THED) high school summer program continues its success through the summer of 2015. JGPT students, led by Alessandro Venosa, John Szilagyi and Stephanie Marco, coordinated lessons, seminars and laboratory activities for 47 high school students over the course of two weeks. First introduced in 2013, THED continues to provide high school students the opportunity to meet scientists and clinicians in diverse fields within toxicology and learn key laboratory techniques such as cell staining, enzymatic analysis, PCR and DNA isolation.
Two one-week sessions ran July 20-24 and July 27-31, 2015. The THED program will be held again in the summer of 2016. More information for the upcoming year, including how to apply, will be available soon.
