Journeys in Biotech: How a New Drug is Made and Who Does It

  • Wednesday, February 20, 2019
  • 10:00am - 12:00pm

Join us for a mixture of board game competition and hands-on lab work as we explore the long and complex journey a new drug travels to become a medicine. Learn the various ways a drug may be discovered, manufactured and tested, and what it takes for that drug to survive stringent ethics board and FDA evaluations. Only a tiny fraction of drugs will succeed in the process, which is designed so that only safe and effective drugs will be approved as new medicines. From science to ethics, finance to careers, students will gain a much clearer and deeper understanding of the pharmaceutical biotech industry, and the wide range of both scientific and non-scientific career paths this industry offers.

Note: Parents do not need to attend the lab with their child but do need to remain in the Museum.
