Harbor's ROP Biotechnology class attended the Biomedical Computation Conference at Stanford (BCATS). This field trip allowed students to experience a real scientific conference where world-class researchers, industry specialists, and graduate students all shared about advances in their fields. While gaining insights about what their possible future careers hold, the students also got to enjoy several tours of Stanford laboratories led by PhD students. BCATS proved to be a wealth of knowledge for the Biotech class, from learning the differences between an engaging or dreary talk to simply experiencing the campus of an elite research institution.
