The undergraduate Biomedical Laboratory & Clinical Sciences (BLCS) resides at Boston University School of Medicine. This Metropolitan College program offers a B.S. degree as well as two advanced certificates in biotechnology and clinical research. Courses in the Biomed program include basic science courses, such as biochemistry and immunology, to technical courses such as cell culture and microbiology. Classes are held in the late afternoon and they attract a very diverse population of students. Courses are held throughout the year and instructors are drawn from the BUSM community of faculty and students.
BioScience Academy (BSA) is a smaller program within the Biomed program. BSA is a tuition-supported, two-semester, daytime program in biotechnology. BioScience Academy targets unemployed and underemployed Greater Boston residents with at least an associate degree in a STEM discipline plus STEM work experience.
At this seminar, we will more fully describe these two programs and how BUSM Postdocs, and Ph.D. students can participate.
