Biomedical Science & Technology

Program Competencies

The Biomedical Science & Technology Program at SST is a lab-based in-depth exploration of emerging technologies and innovations. While working in a real world, state-of-the-art laboratory setting students explore: gene modification, immunology, microbiology, genetics, bioinformatics, pharmaceutical drug discovery, forensics, AND more. Students will acquire advanced biological techniques including: DNA isolation, manipulation and sequencing, DNA and protein gel electrophoresis, diagnostic microbiology, plant and animal tissue culture, cloning, and more. Through recreations of actual industry investigations and through intense, novel laboratory research, students become skilled in the techniques in demand today.

Students can contract for Honors Level or College Prep Level.

CAREERS:
The Biomedical Science & Technology Program at the Seacoast School of Technology is designed to prepare students to pursue a wide range of medical and scientific careers. Students have gone on to become: geneticists, cancer researchers, pathologists, medical doctors, molecular biologists, forensic scientists, genetic counselors, microbiologists, and so many more.
