Whitehead Institute Partnership for Science Education
Seminar Series for High School Teachers 2017-2018

Technology and biomedical research have had a long symbiotic relationship. Over the years, advances in our understanding of biological processes have translated into the development of new drugs, tools, and methods, which have, in turn, contributed to new scientific discoveries.

Whitehead Institute’s 2017-2018 Seminar Series for High School Teachers, How Technology Drives Biology, will examine how the interplay between biology and technological innovation is accelerating breakthroughs and advancing our approach to understanding human health and disease.

The first seminar of the 2017-2018 season will be held on *Tuesday, October 3, in Whitehead’s McGovern Auditorium. Each session begins promptly at 4:15 p.m. and includes a lecture and working dinner, typically ending by 6:30 pm.

The deadline for registration is Friday, September 22, 2017. Space is limited; we will accept applicants on a first-come, first-serve basis. For questions please contact Amy Tremblay at tremblay@wi.mit.edu

Whitehead partner program

As in previous years, we will match each teacher with a postdoctoral fellow, graduate student, or technician partner, who will serve as a resource for you throughout the year. So that we can match you with a partner who is able to meet your specific needs, please decide which level of partnership is most appropriate for you.

Check one:

* We will do our best to accommodate this request, but cannot guarantee the same partner as last year.

** Partner visits and/or field trips to Whitehead can be arranged at both the Minimum and Medium levels should a mutual agreement exist between both teacher and partner.
