The Health and Biomedical Sciences Summer Camp will be held at Lebanon Valley College from July 26-31, 2020. The goal of the Health and Biomedical Science Summer Camp is to provide a window into the scientific basis of human health. Through lectures and hands-on laboratory investigations in the state-of-the-art laboratories, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of molecular biology, pharmacology, immunology, biochemistry, and neuroscience. Students will learn how laboratory science can be translated into improved human health, and they will engage in investigative experiences that will allow them to apply their laboratory skills to real life problems. In addition, students will interact with practicing professionals in fields such as medicine, physical therapy, toxicology, nursing, and biomedical laboratory research. The Health and Biomedical Sciences camp will provide a fun, challenging, and engaging college environment in which students will develop a deeper understanding of what it means to be a biomedical scientist and health professional.
