Stem Cell Engineering
The program is intended to provide to students key concepts about how stem cells can help us to model diseases. Students will explore what make stem cells unique, with a specific focus on their characterization and their function. They will extend their knowledge to include an introduction to the more specialized area of genome editing (CRISPR-Cas9).
Food Science
New foods and cosmetics are developed and tested every day, then brought to market by companies that have spent millions on R&D. These programs have been designed to help our students understand this process. Since food and cosmetic sciences cover many different disciplines, this program includes lessons in a range of areas.
