BioTrain students dive into biotech internships

This summer marks the fifth year of BioTrain, HudsonAlpha's signature internship program. More than 250 students, rising high school juniors through graduate students, applied for 27 available positions.

"We have a great diversity this year, in both background and age," said Adam Hott, Ed.D., coordinator of educational outreach. 

Anna Willis is a University of Alabama senior who is working on a double major in biology and chemistry. She heard about BioTrain from a friend. Willis landed an internship with resident associate company Serina Therapeutics.

BBVA Compass Bank supports science education at HudsonAlpha

HudsonAlpha's educational outreach team received a big boost from BBVA Compass Bank when the local financial institution donated almost $6,000 toward the Science for Me Too! program. 
This program creates opportunities for underserved students to experience science and lab activities outside of the regular school day. Through the generous support of BBVA Compass Bank, more than 489 elementary and middle school students have participated in hands-on science activities. Activities have taken place at the institute, as well as Sci-Quest Hands-on Science Center.
