AP Biology and Biotech students visited Vertex, a pharmaceutical company that develops and manufactures medicine for different diseases. Mr. Dustin Zahm took his students for an educational and exciting trip to the South Boston based company on November 30th.
They were able to learn more about genetic diseases including Cystic Fibrosis and Sickle Cell disease through a discussion and lab work.
Students found it exciting and nerve wracking while they were participating in the lab. The key to having an accurate result is a careful steady hand, which is easier said than done.
