Alumni Profiles

What is it like to work in biotechnology?

We interviewed students and alumni to learn about their careers and hear about a typical day on the job. Most of the people profiled in this section graduated from a community college biotech program. We also have video interviews and articles about people working in different kinds of biotech careers.
