JBEI Hosts National Student Leadership Conference


The Joint BioEnergy Institute hosted 76 students who are taking part in a summer biotechnology program run by the National Student Leadership Conference (NSCL). Every summer the NSLC invites a select group of outstanding high school students, from the US and abroad, to participate in its fast-paced, high-level, interactive summer sessions. The NSLC’s west coast biotechnology program is currently taking place at the UC Berkeley campus. During the July 22 visit, JBEI’s researchers Ee-Been Goh, Jennifer Hiras and Michael Liszka were on hand to showcase JBEI’s innovation and technology as well as provide advice on potential career paths in the field of science.
