Genetic EngineeringThe Genetic Engineering Program provides students with extensive research training, beginning as early as the freshman year, with a focus on hands-on experience with cutting edge equipment and techniques of the laboratory. All genetic engineering students have the opportunity to design and conduct their own independent research, including preparing a research paper and presenting their work in seminars. Research opportunities at Cedar Crest College include investigations into the molecular causes of diseases such as Cancer and Heart Disease, the study of Stem Cells, and infectious diseases caused by pathogenic yeast and bacteria. Students routinely present their work with Cedar Crest faculty at the Pennsylvania Academy of Science annual meeting and at other regional, state, national and international meetings. Our graduates have a reputation for excellence in research skills when they enter the job market or graduate school.
